When is using Le Chatelier’s principle helpful when doing these equations and what exactly does it show us?

Le Chatlier's principle shows us how to evaluate where equilibrium lies in a reaction. It is qualitative and helps us determine whether products or reactants are favored.

Le Chatelier's Principle is helpful because it shows us how a reaction gets back to equilibrium after it has been changed in some way that causes it to not be at equilibrium anymore. This is helpful because it allows us to predict whether the reaction will favor the products or the reactants in order to reach equilibrium again.

If the reactants or products are favored does that mean that more of them are present or produced in the reaction?
