This type is balanced by trial and error and it is a relatively simple one. What do you not understand about balancing by trial and error?

Drbob,

It is apparent that you understand Chemistry. I on the other hand do not. I here looking for direction, not to play silly mind games with you.

And I am here to help. I don't play silly mind games. I can balance all of the equations you post and it won't do you one bit of good. On the other hand, if I can identify some of the problems you have about understanding how to do these, perhaps I can show you how to do them. When you know how to do them you won't rely on others to do them for you.
