-x applies to the reactants and +x applies to the products.

Hi, although most of the times reactants are -x and products are +x, this is only true when we know that Q < K and thus favors products. If we find that Q > K, then reactants are favored, and the reactants are +x while the products are -x.

Don't forget to add the appropriate coefficients to x when making your ice box.
