Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The balanced reaction is:

C3H8  +   5O2     3CO2  +  4H2O

Number of moles of propane is 149g/44g/mole = 3.386 moles

Ratio of moles C3H8:CO2 is 1:3.

So we can use the proportion: 1/3=3.386/x, where x is a number of moles of CO2.

x = 3.386*3 = 10.158 moles of CO2

Volume of CO2 is 10.158 moles*22.4L = 227.54L

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
