15.4 liters

#### Explanation:

If the gas is at the same temperature and pressure, then the ratio of volume to moles will be the same.
So $\text{liters"/"moles}$ of the big bubble = $\text{liters"/"moles}$ of the small bubble

$\frac{1500}{48750} = \frac{x}{500}$

multiply both sides by 500 and simplify:

$x = \frac{1500}{48750} \cdot 500$

$x = 15.385$

therefore the volume of methane in the smaller bubble would be about 15.4 Liters.
