#### Explanation:

**Left Hand Side**

1 x Nitrogen

3 x Hydrogen

2 x Oxygen

**Right Hand Side**

1 x Nitrogen

2 x Hydrogen

2 x Oxygen

I would approach this by considering multiplications of 3 and 2:

6, 12, 18....

You can balance the hydrogen and nitrogen here, but not oxygen - you would need 2 1/2

The equation is now completely balanced:

**Left Hand Side**

4 x Nitrogen

12 x Hydrogen

10 x Oxygen

**Right Hand Side**

4 x Nitrogen

12 x Hydrogen

10 x Oxygen
