Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Si is balance on bot side O was unbalance on bot side H was balance on bot side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Si  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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since the O become 2, and you already have SiO2 < that + the 2O you just added becomes 4 < 4 and 4 = balanced !
