adding an inert gas

Why does adding an inert gas not affect the reaction?

Inert gasses/noble gasses are nonreactive.

They do not affect the concentrations of other substances in equilibrium because they do not react.

The reacting gases (the gases that are actually part of the equilibrium constant) still occupy the same individual molar concentration/partial pressure within the reaction vessel so there is no change to the equilibrium constant.

They are unreactive!
