the coefficients give the molar ratio of the reactants

What information can you determine from the coefficients in this balanced chemical equation? Mg + 2HCl → MgCl2 + H2

The coefficient in a balanced equation tells you the ratio of moles/molecules/etc of one reactant to the other reactants, and to the products. It gives you the stoichiometry of the reactions.

A balanced chemical equation has correct placed coefficients and a representative chemical equation need these coefficients.

To correctly determine the balanced chemical equation, one must make sure that the products are appropriately relating to the reactants and make sure that the equation is balanced with the lowest coefficients. That should help.
