Balance Half Reactions: Oxidation and Reduction

Fe+2(aq) + Mn(s)  --->  Fe(s) + Mn+4(aq) 

Can someone please help me balance the equation? I got the half reactions which I think was:

Fe2+ +2e- --> Fe red.

Mn --> Mn+4 +4e- Ox. Is this correct?

Please help me balance, I think I need to multiply Fe by 2 but I'm not entirely sure. Thank you.
