Reverse and Forward

Can someone explain to me how the Reverse and forward K are related. I was told today that forward is not always 1/reverse, similar to how we learned during equilibrium. Can someone clarify this please?

Re: Reverse and Forward

The equilibrium constant is equal to the forward reaction rate constant divided by the reverse reaction rate constant.
