Why is there a KOH in the answer?

In the reaction, there are hydroxide ions, but since everything else is shown as a solid, the hydroxide ions are written as KOH to show that the hydroxide ions are bounded to something and are not simply by themselves. Hope this helps!

Why are species of the same phase separated by vertical lines instead of commas in the answer, and where do the free OH-(aq) ions come from since the original equation is only made of solids?
