TAMRON 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 77D - is this compatible with my K-X? newbie here

I just bought at a thrift store for $7.50 a TAMRON 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 77D. I thought when I did a quick search online that it was compatible with my k-x, but it doesn't fit and I don't see it in the database on here of 3rd party lenses. Does anyone know if it it will work with my Pentax and if I need an adaptor or something?

Thanks in advance for any information!

I don't see anything on the lens that says K - so maybe not, I really am a newbie. I thought I read that the 77D was compatible with Pentax. There is definitely no "K" on the lens though.

Tamron makes lenses for Canon mount, Nikon mount, Sony mount and Pentax mount (K-mount).

If your Tamron lens is a K-mount, you can put it straight on the K-x. In the negative, you cannot.

On the box of the Tamron, you will find the camera mount of your lens.

I see - thanks! I don't have the box, and it doesn't fit my k-x... oh well. At least I didn't pay very much! Thanks again
