Do I just plug in the numbers to get the answer? Do I convert the temp to Kelvin?

N2(g) + O2(g) = 2 NO(g)
If the equilibrium partial pressures of N2, O2, and NO are 0.15 atm, 0.33 atm, and 0.050 atm, respectively, at 2200°C, what is KP?

You don't need to use the temperature for this problem because all you need is the equilibrium expression. You can just plug in the values to solve:
Kp=〖P_NO〗^2/(P_N2 P_O2 )
Kp=〖(0.050)〗^2/((0.15)(0.33))=0.0505
