Can you find what is being oxidized and reduced (including their oxidation numbers), the oxidizing agent, and reducing agent for CH4 + 2O2 CO2 + 2H2O.

    The equation has the correct numbers, you dont need to change anyghing. CH4 is oxidized. O2 is the oxidised agent CO2 is the reducing agent I think.

    CH4 + 2O2 ---> CO2 + 2H2O sorry if me forgetting the yield sign confused you

    Oh wait, I though you were talking about the equation numbers. I am not sure about the axidation numbers.

    Hm, no the oxidation numbers :/ I'm not sure. Like, would I solve the oxidation numbers for each one.. Like CH4 and then 2O2 and so on?

    here , C has oxidation no. = -4 in CH4 (since H has +1 oxidation state), while it's +4 in CO2 ( since O has -2 oxidation state) while O is in zero oxidation state in O2 (as oxidation states of elements in free state is zero) and -2 in H2O
