Ideal Gas Equation and Temperature change?

During a thermodynamic process, the state variables of an ideal gas, measured in kPa, m3, and oC, varied in the following way:

P2 = 2P1

V2 = 3V1

T2 = 8T1

What is the temperature increase of the gas, T2 −T1 ?

I've been given an answer of 4780 and I'm not sure how to get there?

Did you try just using the fact that PV/T is constant?

Yes but I still cant get the answer that was given

Well, according to you, the temperatures are given in Celcius. Did you first convert them to Kelvin before using PV/T = constant?

Even if it should not be actual homework, it is of homework quality and should be handled there, the usage of our template included.
