Balancing the redox reaction in acidic media:

BrO3(aq) + N2H4(aq) → Br2(l)+N2(g)


Step 1: Separate the whole reaction into two half-reactions:

BrO3(aq) → Br2(l)                          N2H4(aq) → N2(g)  


Step 2: Balance the non-hydrogen and non-oxygen elements first:

2 BrO3(aq) → Br2(l)                          N2H4(aq) → N2(g)
