When we combine the three gas laws into one expression:

V is directly proprtional to T
P is directly propetional to T ---------> PV is directly proprtional to T
P is inversely proportional to 1/V

PV/T= constant



*******I do not understand how PV is directly proportional to T and how PV/T= constant. Is there a mathematical manipulation or something? Please explain.

    PV=nRT replacing nR with c,a constant, then PV=cT

    so PV is directly proportional to T

    for part 1, divide
    PV=cT by T
    PV/T=constant
