When a reaction equation is given, the first thing to do is to make sure that it is balanced. If the given equation is unbalanced, balance the reaction first. 

Na3PO4(aq) + NiCl2(aq) → Ni3(PO4)2(s) + NaCl(aq)   unbalanced


Balancing the reaction equation:

Balance Na:

Na3PO4(aq) + NiCl2(aq) → Ni3(PO4)2(s) + 3 NaCl(aq)

Balance Ni:
