    I can't figure out the mechanism for combining aspirin with HCl and CH3OH (methanol).

    The study guide I'm using shows the final product as a benzoic ring attached to another ring. The second ring is 5 atoms, with one of them being an oxygen, it also has a double bond to an oxygen on one carbon, and the other carbon has OCH3 and CH3 attached.

    The product would be C10H10O3.

    any suggestions? thx a ton!
