Titration chemical equation

Ok so the equation is for a titration of sodium hydroxide and ASA(asprin) I belive the chemical formula of asprin to be C9H8O4 and sodium hydroxide is
NaOH. so the formula goes C9H8O4 + NaOH --> ?
If someone knows the rest of the formula it would be a great he

ASA (acetylsalicylic acid) is an aromatic carboxylic acid. The carboxylic acid is titrated with NaOH in your example. Remove a proton from the formula (C9H8O4) and replace it with a sodium to show the product.
