A method I use to remember the meanings of when Q>K and Q<K is to think of Q wanting to approach K. This can be visualized as a number line with K placed in the center. If Q is less than K, then the reaction must proceed in the forward direction in order to reach K. Conversely, if Q is greater than K, then the reaction must occur in the reverse direction in order to reach equilibrium. Hope this helps!
I like to think about K on a number line. If Q is less than K, it is to the left of K and is trying to go right (towards products). If Q is greater than K, it is to the right of K and trying to go left (towards products). I hope this helps!
