**Tue Nov 21, 2017 10:42 am**A reactor for the production of ammonia by the Haber process is found to be at equilibrium with P(N2) = 3.11 bar, P(H2) = 1.64 bar, and P(NH3) = 23.72 bar. If the partial pressure of N2 is increased by 1.57 bar, what will the partial pressure of each gas be once the equilibrium is reestablished?

I filled out a table and got the correct equation for the equilibrium constant. However, the solution manual says the equation can be solved using a graphing calculator. My question is, how would we go about solving this equation only using a scientific calculator?
