Physics

You fill your tires with air on a cold morning (-5degreesC) to 220-kPa gauge pressure, then drive into a 32degreesC desert. (a) Assuming the volume of air in the tires remains constant, what's the new gauge pressure? (b) what would be the gauge pressure if the volume of air had expanded by 3%?
