What is the net ionic equation when these compounds are combined/reacted?

I am having a really hard time understanding aqueous reactions and net ionic equations in chemistry. I would really appreciate some step-by-step instructions on these questions... 
1) Consider the reaction when aqueous solutions of barium sulfide and nickel(II) iodide are combined. The net ionic equation for this reaction is:
2) When aqueous solutions of aluminum sulfate and potassium carbonate are combined, solid aluminum carbonate and a solution of potassium sulfate are formed. The net ionic equation for this reaction is:
3) When solid Zn metal is put into an aqueous solution of CuSO4, solid Cu metal and a solution of ZnSO4 result. Write the net ionic equation for the reaction.
Thank you so much in advance to whomever wishes to assist me.
