a) 250 torr

b)383 torr

c) 450 torr

d) 575 torr

e) it cannot be determined

Use PV = nRT

Calculate n for each container, add the number of mols to get the sum, plug that back into PV = nRT and solve for pressure. You don't have a T listed but I used 273. Actually, I think you may use any T you wish as long as you keep it constant throughout. I get one of the answers. (Hint: you KNOW it isn't 250 and you KNOW it isn't 450).
