if Kc is Halved

If Kc is x at 400K, what happens when all the concentrations are halved.

On the practice test, Lyndon put square root x, but when I used numbers, I got 2x

In that problem I don't think the concentrations are halved, it says that the stoichiometric coefficients are halved. And because the stoichiometric coefficients become the exponents, taking the square root would be the equivalent of multiplying them by 1/2.
