How to solve gas law equations

Boyle's law
p1v1 = p2v2
P1 = the pressure of the gas @ the initial volume
V1 = the initial volume of gas
P2 = the pressure of gas at the final volume
V2 = the final volume of gas
List the known variables and the unknown variable
Rearrange the equation to isolate the unknown
Substitute the known values in the equation and solve

Example (use your own data for your situation)
5L of a gas @ a temp of 24C is 105 Kpa. What will ...
