### Having pre-equilibrium in final answer

For the 2015 final, number 6B it asks for the rate of formation. In the answer it uses the (k_1/k_-1); would I be marked down if I just put the equilibrium constant K_1 because it is equal to (k_1/k_-1)?

Thanks

No, you wouldn't. As long as you specified within your work that that was what K was equal to, then you should be fine.
