I recently studied that equilibrium constant is independent of concentration. But if you multiply both sides of equation by any number, equilibrium constant changes. Isn't this contradictory?

Please elaborate. Yes, if you multiply something by something its value usually changes, but how is that related to equilibrium constant?
