How can you tell when a reaction is a precipitation reaction by looking at the equation?

look at the states of the products - if there is a solid as a product that could be considered a precipitate.

if there are no solids in the reactants, but are in the products, can consider a precipitation reaction.

"A precipitation reaction refers to the formation of an insoluble salt when two solutions containing soluble salts are combined. The insoluble salt that falls out of solution is known as the precipitate, hence the reaction’s name"
