1. P4 + 16H2O ==> 4H3PO4 + 20e + 20H^+
1H^+ + 1e + HNO3 ==> NO2 + H2O

Multiply to keep the electrons equal and add the equations together. Finally, cancel ions/molecules common to both sides.

3. P4 + HNO3 ---------> H3PO4 + NO +H2O
-> P4 + H2O -> H3PO4
Then using hit and trial method
P4 + H2O -> 4H3PO4 + 10[O]
(addition of 10 atoms of oxygen i.e. nascent oxygen to make the equation balanced)
-> HNO3 -> NO2 + H2O
Again using hit and trial method
2HNO3 +[O] -> 2NO2 + H2O
(addition of 1 atom of nascent oxygen to make the equation balanced)
NOTE : THE SAME EXTRA ATOM HAS TO BE MULTIPLIED ON BOTH THE SIDES AS PER THE SITUATION AND MUST BE CUT AT LAST
Now adding both the equations to make a single balanced equation
P4 + H2O -> 4H3PO4 + 10[O]
+ 2HNO3 +[O] -> 2NO2 + H2O } ×10
————————————————————
P4 + 20HNO3 -> 4H3PO4 + 2NO + 9H2O
AT last the oxygens and 1 water molecule get cancelled and the above answer remains
Hence done......=)
