You first have to add H20 to balance the O’s. Then, in an acidic solution you just add H+ to balance the H’s . Whereas in a basic solution you either add H+ and balance it with OH- to create H20 or you add an H20 for every 2 OH- molecules on the other side in order to balance the hydrogens.

If it's acidic, balance O with water, then balance H with protons
If it's basic, balance O with OH-, and H with H20
this is a way simpler way to think about it than the worksheet, thanks!
