In a gas at STP, let p(r)dr be the probability that an atom has a nearest neighbor between distances r and r+dr. Find p(r).

I am struggling with this question. For STP I can find the particle density. But where do I go from there? Do I need to think of a volume of space between r+dr and r?

I am very confused.
