We are being asked to calculate Kfor the given reaction, where its Kp is given.

CH4(g) + H2O(g)  CO(g) + 3 H2(g)


When dealing with equilibrium:

Kc → equilibrium units are in molarity 
Kp → equilibrium units in terms of pressure


Kp and Kc are related to one another by the following equation below:
