The net ionic equation for ammonium bromide and iron(II) acetate are?
Consider the reaction when aqueous solutions of ammonium bromide and iron(II) acetate are combined. The net ionic equation for this reaction is:

2NH4Br(aq) + Fe(C2H3O2)2(aq) --> FeBr2(aq) + 2NH4C2H3O2(aq)
As you can see the two hypothetical products are soluble in water. We can represent this with an ionic equation.
2NH4+ + 2Br- + Fe2+ + 2C2H3O2^- --> Fe2+ + 2Br- + 2NH4^+ + 2C2H3O2^-
Now you can see that we end up with the same four ions in solution that we started with. No reaction has occurred. Therefore, we write:
NH4Br(aq) + Fe(C2H3O2)2(aq) --> no reaction

→ N/R (all four ions are soluble in water)
