$Al(OH)_3 + 3HCl$-->$AlCl_3+3H_2O$

Work Step by Step

For the balancing of the equation we will initially balance the coefficients of the Cl, adding 3 to the HCl. Note that hydrogen and oxygen are not yet balanced, for this the coefficient of water will be 3. Finally, our equation is balanced as follows: $Al(OH)_3 + 3HCl$-->$AlCl_3+3H_2O$
