Add up the stoichiometric coefficients for the products and reactants then subtract the sum of the coefficients of the reactants from the products. Although it may seem like this goes against the law of conservation, there are still an equal number of atoms on both sides of the equation.
If you add up the total number of moles on the product side, and subtract by the total number of moles on the reactant side, you will get the net moles. While the number of moles on the product and reactant side may differ, the total number of atoms remain the same.
