(a) $NaOH, sodium hydroxide$ (b)$Al_{2}(CO_{3})_{3}, aluminum carbonate$ (c)$Na_{3}PO_{4}, sodium phosphate$ (d)$Ca(NO_{3})_{2}, calcium nitrate$ (e)$FeCO_{3}, iron(II) carbonate$
To write the names of the compunds you have to apply the rules of inorganic nomenclature. If you have a metal-non and metal compound you first name the metal, which usually is the cation, and then you name the non-metal with $-ide$ at the end of the name of the atom. Sometimes you need to specify the oxidation state by adding roman numerals after the atom's symbol. If you have a non-metal and non-metal compund you have to write the cation's name first (the positive atom) and then the anion (the negative atom) followed by $-ide$. If the compound has $hydrogen$ and another atom it is a binary acid; in this case you add the prefix $hydro-$ followed by the other atom's name followed by $-ic$ and $acid$. When you encounter atom's bonded to $oxygen$ you name the atom bonded with the $oxygen$ and add $-ate$ at the end of the name.
