I'm trying to balance this chemical equation but it's just not working.
C7H14O2+O2 yields CO2 + H20
I'm having problems getting the zeros to balance since there's two zeros on both sides. One of the 0's is just on it's on, not in 2 or an even number so I think that's throwing me off. How do you get the answer and what is it? Thanks!

First, those aren't zeros. They are oxygen atoms.
2C7H14O2 + 19O2 ==> 14CO2 + 14H2O
