### Balancing Equations Double Replacement

Recently my teacher gave me a balancing equation problem with two "fake elements". These elements are "A and Bn", and all we know are that each of these elements are metals. Given this, we were told to find the products of, and then balance the following. _APO4 + _Bn(HSO4)2 -->_
Any help?

What is the oxidation number of A and Bn. Easily to see from the anions.
The _ of A is then oxn. B and the _ of Bn is oxn. A.

Out teacher hasn’t told us. We just have to figure it out on our own

Of course you have to figure out of your own.
APO4 what is the oxidation Number of A. P and O must be known.
