There are two ways to calculate this if we assume STP of 1 atm and 273 K for the pressure and temperature.

We can use the Ideal Gas Law equations PV = nRT

P = 1 atm

V = ???

n = 5.60 moles

R = 0.0821

T = 273 K

#V = 125.51 L

The second method is to us Avogadro's Volume at STP

In both cases the significant digit count is three figures which means the acceptable solution is

I hope this was helpful.
