For O2 gas a=1.36 L^2atm/mol2 and b=3.18e-2

Hint: %diff= 100 X (P ideal - P van der waal) / P ideal

I know that van der waals equation is

(P + a [n/v]^2) (v-bn) = nRT but I have no idea how to use this and my textbook does not give any examples. Thank you for your help!

There is nothing here that you need an idea about. You have a and b, R, T, and n. Solve for P by van d equation, then use the usual PV = nRT and solve for P. Then follow the hint in the problem which tells you how to solve for the % difference.
