    First, using the molecular mass of CH4 find how many moles of it there are.
    Then looking at the equation you can see that for every mole of CH4 you need 2 moles of oxygen. This allows to calculate the moles of oxygen.
    Finally in room temperaute and pressure 1 mole of gas occupies 24 dm3.
