Well I used the OWL system and put in this answer and got it right

2 HCl + Ba(OH)2 ===> BaCl2 + 2 H2O

Hydrochloric acid and barium hydroxide react to form barium chloride and water. It is a process of neutralization because an acid reacts with base to form salt and water. HCl is an acid and Ba(OH)2 is a base.

HCl ------> H+1  +  Cl-1

Ba(OH)2 ------>  Ba+2  +  2OH-1

The balanced ionic equation for the reaction is;

2 HCl(aq) + Ba(OH)2(aq)====>  BaCl2(aq) + 2 H2O(l)

Two molecules of hydrochloric acid react with one molecule of barium hydroxide to form one molecule of barium chloride and two molecules of water.
