#### Explanation:

Start by counting the atoms on both sides of the equation:

L - Atom - R

2 - K - 1

1 - Pt - 1

4 - Cl - 3

1 - N - 2

3 - H - 6

Upon inspection, looks like only Pt is balanced on both sides ( **L** eft and **R** ight).

Start by placing a 2 in front of

Next, place a 2 in front of

These 2 steps will balance the entire equation:
