Ranking Pressures in order of Increasing Temperature

You have six sealed containers, all having the same volume, that contain ideal gases with a different number of molecules at various pressures. The values of the number of molecules (N) and the pressure (P) are listed below.
Rank these containers in order of increasing temperature, from smallest to largest.
(If B is lowest, then A, C, D, and finally E is highest, enter BACDE )
(Note: if of equal magnitude, then enter in the order listed)

A) P = 3 atm. . . . .N = 9000
B) P = 6 atm. . . . .N = 3000
C) P = 5 atm. . . . .N = 7000
D) P = 1 atm. . . . .N = 5000
E) P = 4 atm. . . . .N = 1000
F) P = 2 atm. . . . .N = 1000

Ideal gas satisfies the equation
<br> PV=NkT
<br>where, P is the pressure, V is the volume, N is the number of molecules, k is the Boltzmann's constant, and T is the ...
