Can someone explain Le Chatelier's Principle?

Le Chatelier's Principle: When a stress is applied to a system in dynamic equilibrium, the equilibrium tends to adjust to minimize the effect of the stress.

Adding on to that, his principle applies to changing physical parameters Pressure and Temperature.

When pressure increases, the reaction favors the side with the least moles of gas.

It isn't that when pressure changes it will favor one side, it is when molarity is affected.

Le Chatelier's Principle states that if a constraint (such as a change in pressure, temperature, or concentration of a reactant) is applied to a system in equilibrium, the equilibrium will shift so as to tend to counteract the effect of the constraint.
