I know I use PV=nRT, but what numbers do I plug in and why couldn't I use p1v1/t1=p2v2/t2?

DON'T use 5.0 L as V2 and you must change one of the pressures to make the same unit (150 atm must be changed to mm or 755 mm must be changed to atm). And T must be in Kelvin.

For PV = nRT

150 atm = P

V = 22 L

n = ??

R = 0.08205

T = 31 + 273 = 304.

Then use PV = nRT again.

P = 755 mm = 755/760 = ?? atm.

V = solve for this.

n = use from calculation above.

R = same constant as above.

T = 22 + 273 = 295

Then use the volume from this last calculation to determine how many 5.0 L balloons can be filled.
