    If i'm not mistaken sorry if i'm wrong on this but I think it should be

    KBr + NaOH --> KOH+ NaBr

    However, all of those will dissociate into ions (on both sides of the equation). Maybe you have to assume that water is a reagant because it is a solution of NaOH, and then it will be an acidic reaction. I may be off though...

    Maybe you'll observe no visible reaction since both the reactants and products are very soluble. But it should be a simple double displacement reaction I think
