ICE table

When constructing the ICE table, if there is a coefficient in front of the products, do we include that number in the quadratic, or solve for x and then multiply it by the coefficient afterward?

When the is a coefficient in front of a product, you must use it while constructing the equation for K when solving for x. The coefficient is used as a power value in the equation. Ex. 2NO would be [NO]^2 in a K equation.

You have to keep in mind molar ratio when doing your ice tables. If the product of a reaction was "3HCl" you would subtract "3x" from the initial concentration. Then it just carries over to your quadratic as a coefficient and when everything is foiled out, you will end up with a, b, and c values.
