Hey!

Balancing questions seems really confusing at first but it becomes like second nature when you’ve had some practice!

The best way to think about it is that you need the same number of atoms of an element on each side of the arrow. You can’t change the small number in subscript so you manipulate the big numbers at the front of the molecules. In this way you are basically playing match up to ‘balance’ the atoms on each side of to make sure you have the same number of atoms on both sides.

Hopefully that helped a little bit, but also ‘Free Scoence Lessons’ on YouTube is good if you type that in and then ‘balancing equations’. The CGP revision guide also has very good examples answers that reach you the concept.

Good luck in your mocks!
