A tire is filled with air at 10°C to a gauge pressure of 220 kPa. If the tire reaches a temperature of 30°C, what fraction of the original air must be removed if the original pressure of 220 kPa is to be maintained?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I tried finding the pressure at 30°C assuming volume stays the same using P1/T1=P2/T2 and got nowhere after that. Then I tried setting P to be equal and use the resulting formula of T1/V1=T2/V2 and got a percentage greater than 100%...
