  1. ............2NOCl ==> 2NO + Cl2
    initial.....1.25.......0.....0
    change.......-2x.......2x....x
    equil......1.25-2x.....2x.....x

    From problem, 1.25-2x =1.1 mols
    Therefore, x = 0.075 mols
    Convert x, 2x, and 1.25 to moles/L. M = moles/2.5L.
    You now know (NO), (Cl2), and (NOCl).
    Substitute into the Kc expression for NOCl and solve for Kc.

  5. dr bobs response was correct, but for anyone who needs to go further, 2NOCl is 1.1, 2NO is 0.15, and Cl2 is 0.075 by x. To get Kc, it would be (0.15^2)(0.075)/(1.1^2), which equals 1.4x10^-3.
