In order to balance a chemical equation, you need to figure out the reactants and products first. In this case, you only have one compound which means this is not a chemical equation. After you have had all the reactants and products, you can then try to come up with accurate coefficients in front of every compound to make the number of elements in the reactant side equal to the product side.
For combustion reactions, a hydrocarbon is usually reacted with oxygen to form water and carbon dioxide. To arrange reactants and products, you need to know what is actually going on in the reaction and what type of reaction it is.
