Q can be the concentrations of the reactants and products at any point in the reaction. K can only be the concentrations of the reactants at equilibrium. You go about solving them the same way. By using both Q and K, we can determine which way the reaction is more likely to proceed.

Yes! If Q and K are equal, we know that the mixture has equilibrium composition and has no tendency to change in either direction.
