If I understand you would try just to balance mulecular masses.

It woul be right, but not sufficient to balance the reaction because it would give just one constraint on coefficients (you need several)

#### Explanation:

Example

We start from

Then realize that we can multiply both terms for a constant so we can put

Then equal the molecular masses:

This is true in our balanced equation (where
