Step 1

Equilibrium constants for the given reactions is obtained.

Step 2

To determine the value of Kfinal, relationship between K1, K2 and Kfinal has to be obtained.

Step 3

Kfinal is the inverse of the product of K1 and K2. Hence, the equilibrium constant Kfinal can be determined by substituting the given values of K1 and K2
