Hi, I am having some trouble understanding my text book. Could you explain to me how to balance the following equations using the half cell method and show both their half cell reactions, including how to identify them as either oxidation or reduction reactions.

Cl2+OH^- <> Cl^-+ClO3^-+H2O

SO4^2-+I^-+H^+ <> S^2-+I2+H2O
