    From Boyle s Law, we know that Pressure and Volume are inversely related (just think about it, it s pretty intuitive).

    So the ratio of our new pressure to our original pressure is equal to the ratio of the original volume to the new volume (because they are in an inverse relationship).

    1.999/1.011 = V/24.7

    Some simple calculation -> V = 48.838 -> 48.4L

    Hope I helped!
