It is produced on an industrial scale by the oxidation of methane in the presence of ammonia. The equation below is an unbalanced form of the chemical eqation for the reaction to produce hydrogen cyanide.

I need to write a balanced equation for this reaction using the lowest possible whole number coefficients, and I have to include the state of each compound. I may assume that the reaction occurs at a temperature above 100 degrees Celsius.

CH4 + NH3 + O2 (arrow) HCN + H20
