How is Le Chatelier's principle applied when another gas in added to a system?

Basically this principle says that if a gas is added or other constraint than the equilibrium shifts to counterbalance the effect applied

When a new gas is added to the system (not including inert gases), the chemical reaction goes out of equilibrium. According to Le Chatelier's Principle, the reaction will adjust itself in order to restore itself back to equilibrium (its K value) by either increasing or decreasing gas pressures on each side of the reaction.
