Chemistry

Inflating a balloon requires more pressure than the pressure of the atmosphere outside of the balloon, in order to compensate for the stretchiness of the balloon’s material. Would you need more or less gas to compensate? (Hint: Consider the ideal gas law equation. How does n need to change to increase P?)
