  1. You must have meant "..until its pressure is reduce to exactly half its original VALUE". Pressure cannot equal volume. They have different dimensions.

    (1) P*V = constant
    V2/V1 = P1/P2 = 2

    (2) P*V^5/3 = constant (for a monatomic gas)
    (V2/V1)^(5/3) = P1/P2 = 2
    V2/V1 = 2^(3/5) = 1.5157
