To calculate the composition of this mixture at the given temperature, there is the requirement of the total pressure of the system.
One the total pressure of the system at the given temperature is known, one can apply the formula,
P=P(tolurne) + P(benzene)
= p0(toluene) * mole fraction (toluene) + p0(benzene) * mole fraction ( benzene)
take mole fraction of toluene as x and that for benzene as 1-x and solve further to get to the answer
