Consider the following reaction:


This reaction is carried out at a specific temperature with initial concentrations of [CO] = 0.27 M and [H2] = 0.49 M. At equilibrium, the concentration of CH3OH is 0.11 M. Find the equilibrium constant at this temperature.
Express the equilibrium constant to two significant figures.

I keep getting 1.69 but its not right. Please help!
