    Ag + (NO3)-1 --> Ag+1 & NO

    Step 1: What substance is reduced?

    the nitrogen in (NO3)-1

    from +5 to +2

    Step 2: What substance is oxidized?

    the Ag metal from zero to +1

    Step 3: What is the half reaction for oxidation?

    Ag --> Ag+1 & 1 e-

    Step 4: What is the half reaction for reduction?

    (NO3)-1 & 3 e- --> NO

    Step 5: What is the net balanced equation?

    3Ag + 1 (NO3)-1 --> 3Ag+1 & 1 NO

    & if you want the rest, it would also use:

    3Ag + 1 (NO3)-1 & 4 H+ --> 3Ag+1 & 1 NO & 2H2O

    Step 6: What is the reduced equation?

    would you email an example showing me what typically this would be...

    because I see how to reduce that equation any more than it is...

    unless you mean:

    3Ag + 1 N+5 --> 3Ag+1 & 1 N+2
