Homework Help: biochem

I'm stuck on this question, not sure where to start. can you show detail and explain so that it helps me to understand it. help please, thanks.

The value of delta G for the conversion of 3-phosphoglycerate to 2-phosphoglycerate (2PG) is +4.4kj/mol. If the concentration of 3-phosphoglycerate at equilibrium is 1.75mM, what is the concentration of 2-phosphoglycerate. Assume temperature of 25C. Constant R = 0.0083145 kJ/mol

Also another question I have (I think I have it right but not sure)

consider: A + B double arrow C + D
which of the following would decrease delta G, which would increase delta G, which would have no effect on delta G?
Decreasing A and B
Adding a Catalyst
Coupling with ATP hydrolysis
Decreasing C and D

I think Adding a catalyst would have no effect
Decreasing A and B would decrease delta G
Coupling with ATP hydrolysis would also decrease delta G
and decreasing C and D would increase delta G
is that correct?

thanks for the help
