This statement is true because the concentration of the reactants over the products at equilibrium should equal the equilibrium constant. The constant for the reaction at equilibrium will not change, therefore, as you increase the concentration of the reactants, the concentration of the products should increase at the same rate so the ratio of the products to reactants should equal the equilibrium constant.
