In this video, we learn how to balance a chemical equation. First, take a look at both sides of the equation and figure out how many atoms there are for both. Once you write this out, you will have an idea of how unbalanced it is. Now that you've done this, you need to think about how you can make the equation equal. Look at the first line and then see how many you have to add to one side to make both equal to each other. Then, go to the second line and do the same. When finished, you will have an equal equation in just minutes.
