Answer:

Multiply the #NH_3# by #2#.

Explanation:

To balance the below reaction you will need to multiply the #NH_3# by #2#.

#color(red)(2)NH_3+H_2SO_4->(NH_4)_2SO_4#

Then you will have:

#2N# to the left and #2N# to the right.

#8H=(2xxcolor(blue)(3)) " from " 2NH_(color(blue)(3)) +color(red)(2)" from " H_(color(red)(2))SO_4# to the left and #8H=2xxcolor(green)(4) " from " (NH_(color(green)(4)))_2SO_4# to the right.

#SO_4# to the left and #SO_4# to the right.
