Answer:

#2H_2O_2->2H_2O+O_2#

Explanation:

This reaction is of the spontaneous decomposition of hydrogen peroxide down into water and oxygen.

Add 2 molecules of hydrogen peroxide and 2 molecules of water. Since oxygen is naturally diatomic, the total number of atoms of each element is now the same on both sides of the equation so it is balanced.

#2H_2O_2->2H_2O+O_2#
