  1. You look at each side to see. To be balanced there must the the same number of each kind of atom on each side. For example, I see one atom of C on each side so that's balanced.

  2. you try
    how many C on the left, how many C on the right?
    How many H on the left, how many H on the right?
    How many O on the left, how many O on the right?

    (Only one of them is messed up)
