Homework Help: Acids and bases chemistry problems

  1. Oct 1, 2006 #1
    I am a little stuck on this question :

    Solution A contains n moles of a weak acid HX. The addition of some sodium hydroxide to A neutralises one third of the HX present to produce Solution B.
    In terms of the amount, n how many moles of HX are present in Solution B?
    I think there are one third n moles.

    It then asks to determine the ratio : ____(HX)_____
    (X^-)
    in solution B ..... I AM TOTALLY STUCK WHAT TO DO HERE!

    ANY HELP PLEASE
