hardest chemistry problem ever (BALANCING REDOX EQUATION) if you are good at chemistry then try to solve this?

this is one of the hardest redox equation. so, if you can do this , you can do any kind of problem in chemistry.

the problem is

CuSCN+KIO3+HCl === CuSO4+KCl+HCN+ICI+H2O

(BALANCING REDOX EQUATION)

ACID OR BASES IT'S DOES NOT MATTER

SHOW ALL WORK

THANKS

    4 CuSCN + 7 KIO3 + 14 HCl = 4 CuSO4 + 7 KCl + 4 HCN + 7 ICl + 5 H2O

    I think

    i would show you workings but they're on paper here.

    Go to this web site and it will balance your equations for you or tell you if they are impossible and why:

    http://www.webqc.org/balance.php

    I fed your equation in and it came back as impossible. It's possible that you have listed things (ie..HCN) that aren't true compounds. I also fed HCN into wikipedia and came up with zip. You might want to recheck your reactants and products to make sure the compounds are correct, then go to the web site to get it balanced. Good luck!

    put 2 in front o KIO3 , 4 in front HCl, 2 in front 2 KCl , 2 in front of ICl and 2 in front H2O

    5CuSCN + 7KIO3 + 7HCl -> 5CuSO4 + 7KCl + 5HCN + 7ICl + H2O
