The buoyant force on a balloon is equal to the mass of air it displaces. The gravitational force on the balloon is equal to the sum of the masses of the balloon, the gas it contains, and the balloonist. If the balloon and balloonist together weight 175 kg, what would the diameter of a spherical hydrogen-filled balloon have to be in meters if the rig is to get off the ground at 22 degrees Celsius and 752 mmHg? (Take MM air= 29.0 g/mol)

HELP! We're currently studying gases but I don't even know where to start with this question.
