In a two-tailed t-test for means equality with df= 22, tcalc=3.511, and .001 < p<.01. How to calcultate exact p-value?

There was no table or anything else attached to this problem, and I can't find any examples in the book that would explain how to solve it when only this information is given. Please help.

Use R or something similar as in

Two-tailed (so double) the probability of being more extreme (so above) $3.511$ if there are $22$ degrees of freedom –  Henry Feb 26 at 0:07
