First, we have to know the formula of each of the substances:

calcium nitrate: Ca(NO₃)₂
ammonium fluoride:  NH4F
calcium fluoride: CaF2
dinitrogen monoxide: N2O
water: H2O

Next, we write the unbalanced reaction. We look at each element and count the number per side. The side with the less number of that element should get a coefficient to balance.
