    The following is the balanced equation in mass.

    BrO- + 3H2O ---> BrO4)-1 + 6H+

    We know need to balance it in charge. Always do mass then charge. We see we have -1 charge on the left from the BrO-. There is a -1 charge from the BrO4)-1 and +6 charge from the 6H+ on the right. We add these together to give us a +5 charge on right. So in order to balance the ...
