The ratios of the masses of Hydrogen to Nitrogen are $1.44*10^{-1}$, $2.16*10^{-1}$, and $2.40*10^{-2}$. Writing these values in a ratio, we find: $$1.44*10^{-1}:2.16*10^{-1}:2.40*10^{-2}$$ Dividing each of these values by $2.40*10^{-2}$, we achieve the following ratio: $$6:9:1$$ Since all of these values are whole numbers, the data, therefore, supports the law of multiple proportions.
