Q: If the temperature is constant, what change in volume would cause the pressure of an enclosed gas to be reduced to one quarter of its original value?

I think if the chance in volume increases, the pressure of the gas decreases.

Q: Assuming the gas in a contain remains at a constant temperature, how could you increase the gas pressure in the container a hundredfold?
