To balance the equation C6H5Br + NaOH = C6H5ONa + NaBr + H2O using the algebraic method step-by-step, you must have experience solving systems of linear equations. The most common methods are substitution/elimination and linear algebra, but any similar method will work.
Step 1: Label Each Compound With a Variable
Label each compound (reactant or product) in the equation with a variable to tướng represent the unknown coefficients.

a C6H5Br + b NaOH = c C6H5ONa + d NaBr + f H2O
Step 2: Create a System of Equations
Create an equation for each element (C, H, Br, Na, O) where each term represents the number of atoms of the element in each reactant or product.
C: 6a + 0b = 6c + 0d + 0f H: 5a + 1b = 5c + 0d + 2f Br: 1a + 0b = 0c + 1d + 0f Na: 0a + 1b = 1c + 1d + 0f O: 0a + 1b = 1c + 0d + 1f
Step 3: Solve For All Variables
Use substitution, Gaussian elimination, or a calculator to tướng solve for each variable.
- 6a - 6c = 0
- 5a + 1b - 5c - 2f = 0
- 1a - 1d = 0
- 1b - 1c - 1d = 0
- 1b - 1c - 1f = 0
Use your graphing calculator's rref() function (or an online rref calculator) to tướng convert the following matrix into reduced row-echelon-form:

[ 6 0 -6 0 0 0] [ 5 1 -5 0 -2 0] [ 1 0 0 -1 0 0] [ 0 1 -1 -1 0 0] [ 0 1 -1 0 -1 0]
The resulting matrix can be used to tướng determine the coefficients. In the case of a single solution, the last column of the matrix will contain the coefficients.
Simplify the result to tướng get the lowest, whole integer values.

- a = 1 (C6H5Br)
- b = 2 (NaOH)
- c = 1 (C6H5ONa)
- d = 1 (NaBr)
- f = 1 (H2O)
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.
C6H5Br + 2 NaOH = C6H5ONa + NaBr + H2O
Since there is an equal number of each element in the reactants and products of C6H5Br + 2NaOH = C6H5ONa + NaBr + H2O, the equation is balanced.
