The final pressure is 6250 Pa.

#### Explanation:

If we assume that the temperature does not change, then the product of pressure and volume has to be constant:

It means that the product of initial pressure and volume has to be the same as the final product of pressure and volume.

substituting the numbers

Then the final pressure is
