From the information about the first balloon, we can determine k

k = V1/T1 = 600/285 = 2.1053 (this is rounded from 2.10526316)

Since k has now been determined, it's just arithmetic to solve for the second and third balloons.

k = V2/T2

2.1053 = 630/T2

(2.1053)T2 = 630

T2 = 630/2.1053 = 299.24

You can use this same method to solve for V3

Ideal gas law  is  PV =nRT      since n is constant (# moles) for this experiment, we can say PV = kT

and then   P/k = T/V       Pressure in the balloon is constant for all three balloons    so we can say that for all three balloons  P/k is constant

So initially

k = T/V    =

V1/T1 = 600/285 =2.11=k    for all of the balloons

Now for the second balloon ' k ' has to be the same

630/T2 =2.11   T2 = 298.6 Kelvin

For balloon 3

k = 2.11    = V3/T3 = V3/265    yields   V3 = 559 ml
