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

P1V1 = P2V2

P1 and V1 are pressure and volume in first case and P2, V2 are pressure and volume in second case

P2 = (P1V1)/V2

P1 = 1.00 atmosphere

V1 = 5.0 liters

V2 = 3.38

=> P2 = (1.0 x 5.0)/3.38 =1.48 atm

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