equalize the coefficients:

Al(NO3)3+3NaCl=3NaNO3+AlCl3 

according to the equation 1 mol Al(NO3)3 reacted with 3 moles NaCl. hence, 4 moles Al(NO3)3 should react with 12 moles NaCl, and 9 moles reacted NaCl. So NaCl is limiting, we decide further on this reagent.

"\\frac{9}{3}=\\frac{x}{3}"

x=9

9 moles NaNO3
