I would like to take this opportunity in making sure you get the basic knowledge of using chemical equations. At first, it becomes extremely easy if there are no molecules given. For example, if there are no numeric digits before a compound, then it becomes easy to determine the products. All you have to do is determine and analyze the final products. Else, you will have to balance the equation with the numbers which becomes extremely difficult in most cases, especially in higher-order equations.
Thus to avoid this, it is better to understand the question you have given. This will also be the easiest way you will determine the products on your own too. In the question you have, lithium fluoride and aluminum. Since there are no numbers mentioned, it becomes easy to depict the final products.
The final form of this equation becomes:
LiF+AI→Li+AlF
As I mentioned before, I want to give you a read that will also help you in balancing the equation. Let us consider the same example as your question but with numbers. Let’s say you need to find the products for 3LiF+Al. Or in other words, you have to balance the equation and determine the products. Now your final answer or the complete equation will look like this:
3LiF+AI→Li+AlF3
