Working with Kp for the equilibrium

At an unspecified temperature, the equilibrium reaction system I2(g) + Cl2(g) <--> 2ICl(g) has a partial pressure of ICl(g) that is 5520 times the partial pressure of I2(g). In turn, the partial pressure of I2(g) is 2.75 times the partial pressure of Cl2(g). What is Kp for the equilibrium at this unspecified temperature?

Solution Preview

Partial pressure of ICl = 5520* pI2

Partial Pressure of I2, pI2 = 2.75 * pCl2

therefore pICl = 5520*2.75* pCl2 = ...
