When you add 25.0 mL of 1.0 M NaF to 20.0 mL of 1.0 M HF,what would be the result?

I think it's a basic buffer. Am I right?

  1. Yes and no.
    Buffers are solutions of weak acid/salt of weak acid OR weak base/salt of weak base. Yes, this is a buffer but no it is an acid buffer and not a basic buffer. How do you get a base out of HF?
