Carbon monoxide reacts with the iron (lll) oxide.
Would it be like this...

3Fe2 O3 + CO= 2Fe3 O4 + CO2

Not quite. Would it help if I said this reaction is carried out is a blast furnace to produce iron?

No, but your getting warmer. I start by writing the reantant side for you;

[tex]Fe_{2}O_{3} _{s} + 3CO_{g} \rightarrow[/tex]

and in words;

Iron(III) Oxide + Carbon Monoxide [itex]\rightarrow[/itex]

so

Fe2O3 + 3CO = 2Fe + 3CO2
