because it's a 1:1 ratio for all, then at rxn, we would have -x for both EtAc and H2O and + x on the right, so x = 0.03045. Is this correct?

does it mean that because acetic acid has 0.03045 mol at equilibrium that x = 0.03045 mol? So then Ethanol would also have 0.03045 mol at eq and EtAc and H20 would both be their initial [conc] - x?
