    1,2,1,1 just put the 2 in front of OH

    How did you know to put a 2 and not any other number?

    Si - check O- 3 on left side and 4 on right side...so you need another O on the left H- 1 on left side and 2 on right

    in this case, if you add the 2 coefficient in front of OH, it would made the H = 2 that means it balanced out on both side...and also made the O become 2

    since the O become 2, and you already have SiO2 <---- that + the 2O you just added becomes 4 <--- 4 and 4 = balanced !
