### problem 5H1 7th edition part c

Part c has the formula 2N2+6H2-->4NH3. The original problem is N2+3H2--->2NH3 with K=41, both are kept at a constant temperature and you must show their relation. I know you add two to get to your new formula, but don't understand why you would square 41 to get your new K. the answer is 1.7x10^3. Why would we square the K when we added to begin?
