The pressure of a fixed quantity of an ideal gas was held constant. The initial volume was 8.00 cubic meters and the final volume was 2.50 cubic meters. What was the final temperature in kelvins if the initial temerature was 188 degrees fahrenheit...

Please walk me through your steps instead of just suggesting a formula..

Thank you

    188F=359.82= 360 K

    V1/T1 =V2/T2

    T2 =T1•V2/V1 =360•2.5/8 = 112.5 K
