Unbalanced equation


I am trying to design a rankine cycle thermal plant using diesel as fuel. One of the component in diesel is hexadecane. The equation of hexadecane combustion in the reaction manger is not balancedas there is a slight difference in the molar mass of oxygen in O2 and CO2.
What should i do to rectify the equation?

Try balancing the reaction by slightly modifying one of the coefficients.
