1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

"Write the net ionic equation for the reaction between HBr(aq) and NH_3(aq)"

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

H^+(aq) + Br^+(aq) + NH_4^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) --> NH_4Br(aq) + H_2O(l)

It's an online application that is a bit finicky, and I was curious if I'm at least heading the right direction, and if I'm not, then where exactly I'm messing up? I also posted this in the Chemistry forum, but then found this one. Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much. The Barium should've remained an ion, and NH_3 is not equivelent to NH_4 + OH, so the net ionic equation is H^+(aq) + NH_3(aq) --> NH_4^+(aq).
