Balance each of the following skeleton equations.

C) C3H8 + O2 -> CO2 + H2O

This one was a bit harder for me to balance out, but this is what I managed to do.

C3H8 + O2 -> 3CO2 + 8H

    C3H8 + O2 -> 3CO2 + 8H

    Nope. You never need to guess if you balanced an equation or not. Just check it.
    I see 3C on both sides. Good.
    I see 2 O on the left and 7 on the right. nope.
    I see 8 H on the left and 8 on the right BUT that should be 4H2 and not 8H.

    C3H8 + 5O2 ==> 3CO2 + 4H2O
