the question is "write an equation for the overall reaction that occurs when the cell is recharged"
the 2 reactions are: Cd(Oh)2 + 2e- -> Cd + 2OH-
NiO(OH) + H2O + e- -> Ni(OH)2 + OH-

I’m guessing just add the LH sides and RH sides of the equations together and simplify. Not entirely sure though :0

The recharging reaction for an electrochemical cell is just the reverse of the discharging reaction.
