I need help balancing this final reaction. Thank you

r1: 3Ca(NO3)2 + 3Cu(NO3)2 + 10CH4N2O → 3CaO∙3CuO + 10CO2 + 16N2 + 20H2O

r2:12SiC8H20O4 + 24H2O → 12SiO2 + 48C2H5OH

and r3 is the two above sumed

r3:3Ca(NO3)2 + 3Cu(NO3)2 + 10CH4N2O + 12SiC8H20O4 →(CaO∙CuO)∙SiO2 + CO2 + N2 + C2H5OH + H2O

What is CH4N2O? Is it urea. It will never develop ethanol. The nitrate will oxidize it.
What is the silicon compound.

the silicon compound is Tetraethyl orthosilicate (teos). teos+water- sio2 + ethanol

Yes this can decompose to Ethanol and silicon dioxide. But what has this to do with the first reaction? In combination The nitrates would also oxidize it.
