Acid base reaction equations, HA + H2O and HA + OH?

So this first equation is definitely correct: a) HA + H₂O <---> A⁻ + H₃O⁺ So I'm adding a hydrogen proton ion thingy with a base. However, sometimes I see the following equation: b) HA + OH⁻ <---> A⁻ + H₃O⁺ I'm also adding a proton to a base. Why is this different? 1) Why are there two...

A local credit union is a great choice as you will be offered better rates than banks and your money is easily accessible right there in town. If your credit is good, you will periodically be offered personal/signature loans at rates very much lower than a National Bank and they have all of the same services. You are also a member rather than just another customer and it's a lot nicer to go talk to a real person about finances than a helpless, anonymous customer service person on the other end of the phone.
