i am reading an example and it is given like this :
Silver + Sulfur ---> Ag2S
i understand the second part (Ag2S) . The charge of S =2 etc..
But on the first part Silver has a charge of 1 (correct) but Sulfur has a charge of 6 , +_ 2, 4.
How do i know the charge of the sulfur on the first part ?
Also , i think the equation is not balanced right .
