What you want to do first is write K as an expression for each given equation.

For (Equation 1):



For (Equation 2):



For (Equation 3):



Looking at the expressions, you will see that if you multiply by , the from the denominator of will cancel out with the in the numerator of . What you're left with after multiplying, is the exact equilibrium expression for equation 1. Therefore you can solve for by multiplying and .
