### 7.23

I am really confused on this problem and why the answer did not include Cl- in the products for the final equation. The Cl- doesn't cancel out with anything in the other equations...

### Re: 7.23

the answer should be ClO- + I- --> IO- + Cl-
what answer are you referring to?

I think that was probably a mistake in the answer key because since Cl- does not cancel when combining the elementary steps, it should show up in the final balanced equation.
