Ammonium sulfate and barium chloride, I came up with NH2SO4- + BaCL

(NH4)2SO4 (aq) + BaCl2 (aq) -> BaSO4 (s) + 2 NH4Cl (aq)

Barium sulfate forms a precipitate.

I see I started out with the wrong formula Ammonium which is NH4 and I had NHSO4.

That's right. Also, ammonium ion has the charge of +1 and sulfate ion has the charge of -2, so to balance the charges we need 2 NH4+ ions and one SO4^2- ion: (NH4)2 SO4
