An air conditioner is a device that interacts with two environments,

Resolved Question:

An air conditioner is a device that interacts with two environments, the "hot" one whose temperature is larger than that of the "cool" one. The air conditioner removes heat from the "cool" environment and transfers that heat into the "hot" environment. To do so, the air conditioner requires work done from a source, such as electricity. The coefficient of performance of the air conditioner, K, is the ratio of the amount of heat removed from the "cool" environment to the amount external work required to perform the cycle (think of both as an absolute value).

A heat pump is similar to an air conditioner, where the heat pump transfers heat from the "hot" environment by removing thermal energy from the "cool" environment. Once again, external work is required to perform the cycle, because heat is not spontaneously transferred from cool to hot. The coefficient of performance of the heat pump, KHP, is the ratio of the amount of heat added to the "hot" environment to the amount of external work required to perform the cycle.
The same device can act as both an air conditioner and a heat pump (after all, they do the same thing), running the exact same cycle. If the coefficient of performance of the device acting as an air conditioner is K = 3.26, what is the coefficient of performance of the device acting as a heat pump, KHP? Write your answer to three significant figures.
