Select an acid and a base for a neutralization reaction that results in the formation:
d) potassium phosphate
For this problem I got H3PO4(aq) + 3KOH(aq) --> K3PO4(aq) + 3H2O(l)
but the solutions writes the answer as 3KOH(aq) + H3PO4(aq) --> K3PO4(aq) + 3H2O(l)
Does it matter what oder you write the chemical equation? Also if i write K3(OH)3 instead of 3KOH is that also considered correct?

I don't think it matters what order you write the reactants/products in the chemical equation. And 3KOH would be correct because K3(OH)3 would imply that it's a different molecule.
