The question states, "balance the following equations using the smallest whole number coefficients, then write the equilibrium expression Kc for each reaction:". what is it asking for when it asks to use the smallest whole number? And an example given was a) CH4(g) + Cl2(g) <=> CHCl3(g) + HCl(g).

CH4(g) + 3 Cl2(g) <=> CHCl3(g) + 3 HCl(g)
I think it just wanted you to balance the equation so that the coefficients are at the lowest whole number ratio.

I believe that it is just asking you to find coefficients that aren't multiples of smaller numbers.
