When a gas is at RTP, do you know what volume 1 mol of it should occupy?

Unfortunately forum guidelines don’t allow me to give you the answer to your original question or a full solution. However, I can give you hints.

If I told you that at RTP, 1 mole of any gas occupies 24 dm^3, how many moles of oxygen must there be in the 22.8 dm^3?

From this, what is the reacting ratio of hydrocarbon to oxygen?
