molecular/ net Ionic Equation- chem help --Aqueous solutions of lead(II) nitrate ...?

Aqueous solutions of lead(II) nitrate solution and sodium sulfate are mixed. Lead(II) sulfate precipitates, leave a solution of sodium nitrate. Write the balanced molecular and net ionic equations of the reactions.

I dont understand what it is saying. If I had the molecular formula i could solve it. Is it saying lead (II) sulfate is aqeuous and sodium nitrate is solid? or what? i have no idea..

    Lead (II) nitrate and sodium sulfate are both soluble, so they form aqueous solutions.

    Molecular equation:

    Pb(NO3)2 (aq) + Na2SO4 (aq) -----> PbSO4 (s) + 2NaNO3 (aq)

    Total ionic:

    Pb2+ (aq) + 2NO3- (aq) + 2Na+ (aq) + SO42- (aq) -----> PbSO4 (s) + 2Na+ (aq) + 2NO3- (aq)

    Net ionic:

    Pb2+ (aq) + SO42- (aq) -----> PbSO4 (s)

    Na+ and NO3- are spectator ions since NaNO3 is soluble.
