Solution: Consider the generic ionic compounds with the formulas AX and BY and the following solubility rules: AX soluble; BY soluble; AY soluble; BX insoluble Let circles represent A+ ions; squares represent B+ ions; triangles represent X-; and diamonds represent Y- ions. We represent solutions of the two compounds (AX and BY) as follows: Select the correct molecular-level representation showing the ions remaining in solution as a result of mixing the two solutions.

Problem

Consider the generic ionic compounds with the formulas AX and BY and the following solubility rules:

AX soluble; BY soluble; AY soluble; BX insoluble

Let circles represent A+ ions; squares represent B+ ions; triangles represent X-; and diamonds represent Y- ions. We represent solutions of the two compounds (AX and BY) as follows:

Solution consists of two A+ ions depicted as red circles, two X- ions depicted as blue squares, two B+ ions depicted as green squares, and two Y- ions depicted as purple diamonds.

Select the correct molecular-level representation showing the ions remaining in solution as a result of mixing the two solutions.
