To balance the equation NaNO3 + NH3 = NaOH + HNO using the algebraic method step-by-step, you must have experience solving systems of linear equations. The most common methods are substitution/elimination and linear algebra, but any similar method will work.

### Step 1: Label Each Compound With a Variable

Label each compound (reactant or product) in the equation with a variable lớn represent the unknown coefficients.

a NaNO3 + b NH3 = c NaOH + d HNO

### Step 2: Create a System of Equations

Create an equation for each element (Na, N, O, H) where each term represents the number of atoms of the element in each reactant or product.

```Na:	1a	+	0b	=	1c	+	0d
N:	1a	+	1b	=	0c	+	1d
O:	3a	+	0b	=	1c	+	1d
H:	0a	+	3b	=	1c	+	1d

```

### Step 3: Solve For All Variables

Use substitution, Gaussian elimination, or a calculator lớn solve for each variable.

• 1a - 1c = 0
• 1a + 1b - 1d = 0
• 3a - 1c - 1d = 0
• 3b - 1c - 1d = 0

Use your graphing calculator's rref() function (or an online rref calculator) lớn convert the following matrix into reduced row-echelon-form:

```[ 1	 0	-1	 0	0]
[ 1	 1	 0	-1	0]
[ 3	 0	-1	-1	0]
[ 0	 3	-1	-1	0]
```

The resulting matrix can be used lớn determine the coefficients. In the case of a single solution, the last column of the matrix will contain the coefficients.

Simplify the result lớn get the lowest, whole integer values.

• a = 1 (NaNO3)
• b = 1 (NH3)
• c = 1 (NaOH)
• d = 2 (HNO)

### Step 4: Substitute Coefficients and Verify Result

Count the number of atoms of each element on each side of the equation and verify that all elements and electrons (if there are charges/ions) are balanced.

NaNO3 + NH3 = NaOH + 2 HNO

Reactants Products Na 1 1 ✔️ 2 2 ✔️ 3 3 ✔️ 3 3 ✔️

Since there is an equal number of each element in the reactants and products of NaNO3 + NH3 = NaOH + 2HNO, the equation is balanced.
