Balancing Equation using redox reactions?
OF2 --> F- + O2 + H2O
OF2 --> F-
2H+ +OF2 --> 2F- + H2O
2H+ +OF2 + 4e- --> 2F- + H2O
This is as far as I can get. I dont know how to do the other half of the redox since the equation would be:
OF2 --> O2 + H2O
What do I do here? Maybe Im not setting this up correctly?

The problem states:
"Balance the following redox reaction:
In basic solution, oxygen difluoride reacts to produce fluoride ion, oxygen, and water."
I figured out one way of doing it by just adding H2O, H^+ ions, and OH^- ions to either side and balancing it, but I want to know how to do it using half reactions.
