Balancing Equations

7 Steps to balance equations

1) Always write the chemical equation out first

2) Once you have the chemical formulas written correctly you can not change any part of it

3) The only things you can do is add a coefficient out front which is a multiplier

4) Try to balance the first element in the equation

5)Its a game of guess and check, do not get frustrated if things do not come out right the first time

6) Balance hydrogen's and oxygen's last if possible

7) Always check your work
