Chemistry Level 1

When liquid octane (CX8HX18)(\ce{C_8H_{18}}) combusts, it forms carbon dioxide and water vapor. The reaction can be modeled by the following, where α,\alpha, β,\beta, γ,\gamma, and δ\delta are positive coprime integers, α CX8HX18(l)+β OX2(g)γ COX2(g)+δ HX2O(g)\alpha\ \ce{ C_8{H}_{18}}(l)+\beta\ \ce{ O_2}(g)\rightarrow \gamma \ \ce{ CO_2}(g)+\delta\ \ce{ H_2O}(g) Find α+β+γ+δ.\alpha+\beta+\gamma+\delta.
