Answer:
1027.9 mL
Explanation:
Formula P1 x V1 / T1 = P2 x V2 / T2
Fill in what you know
Pressure is constant so no need to put that in making the formula
V1 / T1 = V2 / T2
Voulme 1= 950 mL
Volume 2= ?
Temperature 1 = 25 C
Temperature 2 = 50 C

Convert your temperature to Kelvin
C+273=K
Temperature 1 = 25 C + 273 = 298 K
Temperature 2 = 50 C + 273 = 323 K 
Plug in to the Formula
950 mL/298 K = ? / 323 K 
Rearrange the formula to make one to solve for what is missing.
To get 323 K out of the denominator multiply by it.
Making it
950 mL x 323 K / 298 K = ? 
Plug it in
950 mL x 323 K / 298 K = 1027.9 mL
