b)75
c)300
d)-198
e) none of the above

    Use (P1V1)/T1 = (P2V2)/T2
    Make up values for those not listed, then multiply or divide by 10 or 5 to obtain the new values. Don't forget to use Kelvin for temperature. When you solve for the final T, remember to subtract 273 to change Kelvin back to C.
