There will be 3 reactions in this problem and each consequent reaction builds on the other.
It's important to note that we focus on the C6H11NHSO3 that appears in the product. We'll use the compound containing that in next reaction.
Calcium cyclamate Ca(C6H11NHSO3)2 is an artificial sweetener used in many countries around the world but is banned in the United States. It can be purified industrially by converting it to the barium salt through reaction of the acid C6H11NHSO3H with barium carbonate, treatment with sulfuric acid (barium sulfate is very insoluble), and then neutralization with calcium hydroxide. Write the balanced equations for these reactions.
