14.15

The solutions manual has a 2 subscript for the nickel hydroxide in the final step but shouldn't it be a 3 subscript so that hydroxides cancel out?

if you think it is an error it may be under Lavelle's solution manual mistakes on his website

The post above is correct.

Prof. Lavelle's "Solution Manual Errors" document states the following:

"14.15(c).
The correct solution should have a 3 as the subscript for the nickel hydroxide reactant.
2Ni(OH)3 (s) + Cd(s) → Cd(OH)2 (s) + 2Ni(OH)2 (s) "
