Expert Answer:

single-displacement reaction, also called single-replacement reaction, is a type of oxidation-reduction chemical reaction when an element or ion moves out of one compound and into another. (One element is replaced by another in a compound.) This is represented by the general reaction scheme:

A + BC ? AC + B
In a double replacement reaction parts of two compounds switch places to form two new compounds. Two reactants yield two products. For example when silver nitrate (AgNO3) combines with sodium chloride (NaCl), two new compounds -- silver chloride (AgCl) and sodium nitrate (NaNO3) are formed because the sodium and silver switched places. The chemical equation for this double replacement reaction looks like: 

AgNO3 + NaCl ---> AgCl + NaNO3
