What is the net ionic equation of the reaction of MgCl2 with NaOH?

What is the net ionic equation of the reaction of MgCl2 with NaOH? Express you answer as a chemical equation including phases.
A

First, you should write a molecular equation:

MgCl2(aq) + 2NaOH(aq) ==> Mg(OH)2(s) + 2NaCl(aq)

Then, the net ionic reaction will equal:

Mg^2(aq) + 2OH^-(aq) ==> Mg(OH)2(s)
