Ag(subscript of 2)S + HNO(subscript of 2) -> Ag(subs.2)SO(subs.4) + NO(subs.2) +H(subs2)O
So, Ag2S + HNO2 -> Ag2SO4 + NO2 + H2O ?
What's being oxidised? What's being reduced? What stays the same?

There is probably a mistake on your products side. Instead of HNO2, it's probably HNO3, nitric acid. The equation cannot balance with HNO2.
To find your coefficients:
Count and mark the number of elements on each side of the reaction.
Looking at your oxygens should get you the solution quickly.
Wait, this kind of looks like a dehydration reaction. Make sure about your silver compounds too.
You mean reagents side, don't you?
Indeed I did, my apologies.
my given is correct . and we answer it in while we were on our class :)
So, what is the answer then?
Separate names with a comma.
