  1. there should not be an equal sign in a chemical equation, it should be an arrow going in the forward direction. otherwise that is correct.

  2. Hang on, the nitrogens don't match. Also Iodine does not exist as I, it is diatomic (I2) try this...

    6 KI + 8 HNO3 --> 6 KNO3 + 2 NO +3 I2 + 4 H2O
