Having trouble coming up with this equation

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    cupric bromide is heated. I know I should get cuprous bromide and bromide vapor
    is this right? CuBr2 --> CuBr + Br2 ?

    then, nitric acid is added to the cuprous bromide
    CuBr + HNO3 --> ?

    This is heated...I know I should get CuO...

    then the CuO + CH4 --> Cu + H2O ?

    thanks :)

    2. Relevant equations
