  1. Reduction is the gain of electrons. Which gains electrons?
    I'll help a little with oxidation states. On the left, Cu is +2, N is +5, O is -2, Zn is zero EACH.
    On the right, Zn is +2, N is +5, O is -2, and Cu is zero

    I just need to know the net ionic equation and balance them. I figured the equation. but the net and balance is harder. Co(NO3)2 (aq) + NaOH (aq) = CoOH (s) + Na(NO3)2 (aq) Co(NO3)2 (aq) + Na2CO3 (aq) = CoCO3 (s) + Na2(NO3)2 (aq)
