The question is to identify the salt that is produce from the acid-base neutralization reaction between potassium hydroxide and acetic acid. write the complete ionic equation for each reaction. I am confused as how to approach the problem and what salts can be produced

KOH + HC2H3O2 >> KC2H3O2 + H2O

Net ionic: OH- + HC2H3O2 >> H2O + C2H3O2-

Acetic acid donates a proton, which makes the conjugate base C2H3O2-
KOH is a base, which means it accepts a proton to form water,

Because KOH is a strong base and acetic acid is a weak acid: the salt is basic.

The best way to approach this problem is to write out a balanced equation. Then, the compound formed from the cation and the anion of the products should be your salt.
