  1. You or another person posted this same question earlier. You can scroll down a few questions to find it. Tell me what you don't understand about balancing equations. I answered #1 for the previously posted question that it hardly matters where one starts in balancing an equation. Any place is as good as any; some are better than others. In the spirit of the question, however, I answered that I would start with C.
