    balanced equation : 2 PbS + 3 O2 = 2 PbO + 2 SO2 all you have to do is make sure the number of each element in the reactant are the same as the number of elements in the product for example the reactant (left side of equation) had O2 , while the product had O and O2, which equals to three O. Just play with the numbers and balance both sides.
