Answer:

by using ideal gas equation

Explanation:

ideal gas equation : # P*V = n*R*T #
P : pressure
V : volume
n : moles of gas
R : universal gas constant
T : temperature

R has different values for in different units
R = 8.314 J/mol-k
R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-k
and so on.
here we will use R = 0.0821 L-atm/mol-k
now substitute given values in ideal gas equation
# 7.05 * 54.75 = n * 0.0821 * 379 #
n = 12.4 mol
