Answer:

They don't affect the reactant amount at equilibrium in the reaction.

Explanation:

The equilibrium constant expression is the ratio of the concentrations of the products over the reactants. Pure solids and liquids have a concentration value of 1 in this expression, so they're ignored. Even though solids and liquids technically do have a concentration, they are expected to be constant, so there is no change. Thus, they don't have an impact on the equilibrium.
