You find n by finding the number of moles of electrons transferred in a reaction.

This is the value of moles of electrons that cancel in each of the half reactions before writing the whole net ionic equation.

N is the number of moles of electrons transferred during the redox reaction. You will usually find it when writing half reactions.
