How do you write a neutralization reaction given an acid and a base?

A neutralization reaction is when an acid and base react with each other to form a salt and water. Think of an acid and base as two antagonistic things, one as acidic and one as basic, so when they react, they neutralize the acidity and basicity of each other, which results in water because the acid would donate an H+ and the base will accept it and it will attach to the base's OH-.
