Ok I got a question

I'm confused by the compression ratio bit in this problem and don't know how to do it

If 3.00 m^3 of a gas initally at STP is placed under a pressure of 3.20 atm, the temperature of the gas rises to 38.0 degrees C. What is the volume?

I did this

p1V1/T1 = p2v2/T2

i then solved for T2 and got about 140 degrees K I think I did it wrong because of the compression ratio how do I do this problem THANKS!!!
