Stoichiometry and balancing equations


an aqueous solution of potassium chlorate reacts with an aqueous solution of ironIII carbonate to produce and aqueous salt solution and precipitated salt containing the ironIII ion as products.

So far I got, KCIO3+Fe2(CO3)3=Na+NaFe3

I feel as though I am wrong and need help!!

There is everyting wrong.

Iron -III- carbonate is not solube in water.
Where comes the sodium from in your equation.
NaFe3 is not existing and Na in this envirmont either.
There is no reaction between chlorate and carbonate.
