Can I ask what is your situation that makes you ask this question? Because I find it hard to understand how anyone is required to answer questions like this who hasn't the resources, e.g. a textbook, to attempt an answer.

It is pretty elementary and easy, and usually we require students here to show what they have tried.

You have no textbook? - you can't read ahead of what you go through in class?

You're asked for answers on something not done in class and that your textbook doesn't cover?
You will need a new textbook because this one will not take you far.
Maybe you are supposed to find out using google.
Anyway the shotest easist thing I found was here http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120226213423AAcKYhO

But just remember that there are a number of physical magnitudes and constants that it is just useful to remember. I do not practice what I preach enough, but one thing I most remember is the volume of a mole of gas at standard temperature and pressure.

In your book there is hopefully a section on 'Avogadro's hypothesis' 'molar volume' and the 'Gay-Lussac law of volumes'.
