To count the number of ions in a equation you will use a net ionic equation. To start with a net ionic equation start with a balanced equation, and break all soluble strong electrolytes.

What is a constituent ion?

Constituent Ions are Spectator Ions. Spectator Ions are ions that appear on both sides of the chemical equation. (Spectator Ions appear as both reactants and as products). They do not participate in the reaction and they are NOT shown in the Net Ionic Equation.
