Answer :

Balanced equation: XeF6 + 2H2O XeO2F2 +4HF.

The steps for balancing the reaction are as follows:

1. The main element is Xe. First, check if the atoms of Xe on both sides are balanced. YES, they are.

2. Then take another element i.e. F. It is not balanced on the right side, there are 3 atoms of F missing. So, to balance it multiply HF by 4.

3. Now check the other secondary atoms which are oxygen and hydrogen. Oxygen is not balanced on the left side as there are 2 O atoms so multiply H2O by 2.

4. Now check for the hydrogen atom. They are balanced on both sides.
