How can I balance the following redox: CaCl4 + SnCl2 = CaCl3 + SnCl4 ?


Hi guys,
my teacher give me some redox equations that I have to balance as a homework.
One of these equations is the following:

CaCl4 + SnCl2  :rarrow: CaCl3 + SnCl4

I don't know why in the equation there are CaCl4 and CaCl3...
Do these compounds exist? Or it is just an error of my prof?

Are you sure Ca and not Ce?

Ok if I use Ce it makes sense.
Really thanks  :)

but it's still not balanced...
