  1. (PCl5) = 0.229/3.20 = approx 0.072 but you should start over and calculate more accurately.
    ......PCl5 -------> PCl3 + Cl2
    I.....0.072..........0......0
    C.......-x...........x......x
    E....0.072-x.........x......x

    Substitute the E line into Kc expression and solve for x = (PCl3) = (Cl2) and 0.072-x = (PCl5)
