#### Input interpretation

sulfuric acid + potassium permanganate ⟶ water + oxygen + potassium sulfate + manganese(II) sulfate

#### Balanced equation

Balance the chemical equation algebraically: + ⟶ + + + Add stoichiometric coefficients, c_i, to the reactants and products: c_1 + c_2 ⟶ c_3 + c_4 + c_5 + c_6 Set the number of atoms in the reactants equal to the number of atoms in the products for H, O, S, K and Mn: H: | 2 c_1 = 2 c_3 O: | 4 c_1 + 4 c_2 = c_3 + 2 c_4 + 4 c_5 + 4 c_6 S: | c_1 = c_5 + c_6 K: | c_2 = 2 c_5 Mn: | c_2 = c_6 Since the coefficients are relative quantities and underdetermined, choose a coefficient to set arbitrarily. To keep the coefficients small, the arbitrary value is ordinarily one. For instance, set c_5 = 1 and solve the system of equations for the remaining coefficients: c_1 = 3 c_2 = 2 c_3 = 3 c_4 = 5/2 c_5 = 1 c_6 = 2 Multiply by the least common denominator, 2, to eliminate fractional coefficients: c_1 = 6 c_2 = 4 c_3 = 6 c_4 = 5 c_5 = 2 c_6 = 4 Substitute the coefficients into the chemical reaction to obtain the balanced equation: Answer: | | 6 + 4 ⟶ 6 + 5 + 2 + 4
