redox of chlorine in water 6K.3 d

Cl 2 (g) HClO(aq) + Cl 2 (g). I don't know how to find the reduction half of this problem, it shows Cl going to Cl which isn't a loss or gain of electrons.

I do believe that there is a typo in the book. The Cl2(g) on the product side should be Cl-

In that case, the reduction would be from Cl2 to Cl-
I did that question using Cl- and got a reasonable answer so I assume it’s a typo because it doesn’t make sense with the Cl2(g).

This is correct there is a typo
