Surely you know how to do these. Perhaps you just want to know what answer I get but I don't have the time to work these things unless I have a reason. If you truly don't understand them, explain what kind of problem you are having.

so i plugged int he information that i have from the question... i am using an electronic based hmwk. it says that the answers that i have gotten are wrong... here is what i have come up with....
with using PV=nRT
i got a pressure of 12.6012 atm...
with using the van der w.
i got apressure of 12.2816 rounded
am i even close? 
I have 12.61 atm. Is the T given as 24.6 or 24.60? If 24.6 then you are allowed 3 sifnificant figures and the answer would be 12.6 atm. If 24.60, then 12.61 atm would be the answer.

For the van der Waals question I have 12.75 but I think only three s.f. are allowed so that would round to 12.7. Check my arithmetic.

or 12.8 if we round to the nearest whole even number.
