Salts of weak bases and STRONG acids produce acidic solutions because the conjugate base of the acid is a very weak base while the conjugate acid of the weak base is relatively stronger, so it makes the solution its in acidic.

So a strong acid and weak base will produce an acidic solution while a weak acid and strong base will produce a basic solution?
