How much pressure be increased be increased in order to decrease the volume of a gas by 5% at a constant temperature?

Pressure is inversely proportional to volume
Let Po and Vo be the initial pressure and initial volume.
let P and V be the final pressure and final volume .
( P / Po ) = ( Vo / V ) = 1/0.95
Hence P ≈ 1.053 Po ; Hence Pressure should be increased by 5.3%
