P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2

Pressure times volume over temperature, from initial to final conditions. You have five things looking for six, so a simple equality will do here.

Caution! Temperature might have to be converted to Kelvin and pressure converted to torr. Run it as is and see if the answer is reasoable.
