By Le Chatelier's Principle, the system works to minimize any changes in pressure. If the pressure of the system increases by way of decreasing volume, it responds by shifting in the direction of the least separate molecules so as to reduce particle collisions and decrease pressure. If pressure is increased by way of increasing volume, the system responds by shifting in the direction of the greater number of moles, so if the reactants have more moles than products, it shifts in that direction.
