    101333.33mmHg

    Explanation:

    The following were obtained from the question:

    P1 = at stp = 760mmHg

    V1 = 400.0cu. ft

    V2 = 3cu. ft

    P2 = ?

    Using Boyle's law equation, we obtained:

    P1V1 = P2V2

    760 x 400 = P2 x 3

    Divide both side by the 3

    P2 = (760 x 400) / 3

    P2 = 101333.33mmHg

    The gas must b compressed to a pressure of 101333.33mmHg
