What is the solubility of phthalic acid?

• Organic Chemistry -

A student purified a 3.88 g sample of phthalic acid by recrystallization from water. The published solubility of phthalic acid in 100 mL of water is 0.54 g at 14ºC and 18 g at 99ºC. What is the smallest volume (in milliliters) of boiling water the student could use to dissolve the 3.88 g sample of phthalic acid? (Report your answer to 3 significant figures.)
