I mean did you do: P1/T1 = P2/T2

I used ideal gas law: PV=nRT. V is the volume, n is the amount of air that occupies the V. R is the gas constant, and T is temperature. Air is an ideal gas.
One also needs to know that 1 mole of gas occupies 22.4 L of space. No need to assume a starting point. Just plug in the numbers and solve for P.
