Use the reactions below to predict the equilibrium constant for the reaction 2A(g)<->3D(g)

A(s)<->1/2B(g)+C(g) k1=0.0334

3D(g)<->B(g)+2C(g) k2=2.35

I know that you have to make modifications according to the stoichiometric coeffecients. So do I divide k1 by 2 and the multiply that by the inverse of 2.35 (which = 1/2.35 because the equation is reversed)?

I got this answer, is this correct?
0.0034/2=0.0167*(1/2.35)
=0.0071

is this correct?

    If I understand what you did, I disagree with the answer. Dividing k1 by 2 means you have the reacton 1/2 A --> 1/4 B and that won't add up to anything.
    I think what you want to do is to multiply equation 1 by 2 to give you
    2A ==>B + 2C
    Then reverse equation 2 to give
    2C + B ==> 3D
    --------------------
    Then add those two equations to obtain
    2A ==> 3D which is what the problem asked for.
    So you want to square k1 and reverse k2, then multiply those.
    Check me out on that.
