Hint: Nitride ion is an ion formed by the formation of bonds between three nitrogen. Nitride has the total of negative three charges. Nitrogen belongs to the p block and is a very important element which is the most abundant in our atmosphere. Nitrogen has a total of fourteen electrons.

Tin belongs to the d block element; it has the atomic number of fifty. It has the electronic configuration of $[Kr]5{s^2}4{d^{10}}5{p^2}$
The oxidation state possessed by tin is $+ 4$and the oxidation state possessed by nitride is $+ 3$.
These atoms attack each other and form a compound $S{n_3}{N_4}$.
The formula for tin (IV) nitride is $S{n_3}{N_4}$.
