Balancing chemical equations: Organic alcohol redox reactions

Chemistry Level 3

Alcohols can be oxidised to carboxylic acids using potassium dichromate as an oxidising agent. Below shows an example of such a redox reaction:

Given that a to f are positive integers, what is the smallest value of f?

Hint: Think conservation of charge and conservation of mass.
