### Step 1: Label Each Compound With a Variable

Label each compound (reactant or product) in the equation with a variable vĩ đại represent the unknown coefficients.

a Cu + b CH3COOH = c Cu(CH3COO)3 + d H2

### Step 2: Create a System of Equations

Create an equation for each element (Cu, C, H, O) where each term represents the number of atoms of the element in each reactant or product.

Cu: 1a + 0b = 1c + 0d C: 0a + 2b = 6c + 0d H: 0a + 4b = 9c + 2d O: 0a + 2b = 6c + 0d

### Step 3: Solve For All Variables

Use substitution, Gaussian elimination, or a calculator vĩ đại solve for each variable.

• 1a - 1c = 0
• 2b - 6c = 0
• 4b - 9c - 2d = 0
• 2b - 6c = 0

Use your graphing calculator's rref() function (or an online rref calculator) vĩ đại convert the following matrix into reduced row-echelon-form:

[ 1 0 -1 0 0] [ 0 2 -6 0 0] [ 0 4 -9 -2 0] [ 0 2 -6 0 0]

The resulting matrix can be used vĩ đại determine the coefficients. In the case of a single solution, the last column of the matrix will contain the coefficients.

Simplify the result vĩ đại get the lowest, whole integer values.

• a = 2 (Cu)
• b = 6 (CH3COOH)
• c = 2 (Cu(CH3COO)3)
• d = 3 (H2)

### Step 4: Substitute Coefficients and Verify Result

Count the number of atoms of each element on each side of the equation and verify that all elements and electrons (if there are charges/ions) are balanced.

2 Cu + 6 CH3COOH = 2 Cu(CH3COO)3 + 3 H2

Reactants Products Cu 2 2 ✔️ 12 12 ✔️ 24 24 ✔️ 12 12 ✔️

Since there is an equal number of each element in the reactants and products of 2Cu + 6CH3COOH = 2Cu(CH3COO)3 + 3H2, the equation is balanced.
