Precipitation Reactions

Suppose that aqueous solutions of barium nitrate and potassium carbonate are mixed. What is the name of the compound or compounds that precipitate?

Ive gotten a few different answers for this but they dont seem to be right! Help!

All potassium compounds are soluble, all nitrates are soluble but many barium compounds are insoluble
Any precipitate would either be potassium nitrate or barium carbonate in this reaction.
