I got 3Cu + 8HNO3 -> 3Cu(NO3)2 + 2NO + 4H2O. I balanced the copper last because it was already balanced to begin with, so I knew that whatever coefficient was in front of the carbon on the reactants side would be the same as the coefficient on the products side for Cu(NO3)2. I tried to balance the hydrogens first because they only are in one product and one reactant.

If you look at the topic "trick to balance" that may help you find an easier to way to balance the chemical equations. Hope it helps!
