Can someone tell me if I am any where close or if I need to start over.

When your acetic acid reacted with the sodium hydroxide, what are the two products that were formed?
When acetic acid reacts with sodium hydroxide the two products that are formed are a water and a carboxylic acid salt (or a carboxylate ion and the metal ion from the base). These are formed because the sodium hydroxide completely neutralizes the acetic acid since it has such a strong base.

  1. "and a carboxylic acid salt (or a carboxylate ion and the metal ion from the base)"... You could name the salt and/or the ions for a more complete answer, but otherwise this looks OK.
