    1.- convert all the temperature values from C to K K=C+273 2.- divide each of the pressure by the temperature in K 3.- calculate the average of the P/T calculated in (2) 4.- multiply the 150C converted to K by the average of the P/T calculated in (3)

    You need to use this \[\frac{ P_{1} }{ T_{1}} = \frac{ P_{2} }{ T_{2}}\]

    as @cuanchi said you must convert the temperature from celcius to kelvin.

    \[\frac{ P_{1}*T_{2} }{ T_{1}} = P_{2} \]
