# Chem hw: Balancing Redox Reactions?

Can you please help me on this questions?
Balance the following oxidation-reductions equations under the specific conditions noted:
(XO2)^1+ + (YO)^1+ ==> (X2O4)^3- + Y^1- + (Y3O7)^2- (Basic)
Okay this is what I have so far:
5e^- + 2(XO2)^1+ ==> (X2O4)^3-
1e^- + 3(H2O) + 4(YO)^1+ ==>...

Okay this is what I have so far:

1e^- + 3(H2O) + 4(YO)^1+ ==> Y^-1 + (Y3O7)^2- + 6(H)^1+

It doesn't seem to work out, so what to do then??
