Really simple question, GCSE

    On a past paper is the question 'A swimming pool is in the shape of a cuboid and is 60m long, 10m wide and 1.5m deep. How many litres of water does the pool contain?'

    How do we know how many litres are in a square meter? Am I to just assume it's 1? I have no mark scheme :/

    Sorry if this is a really stupid question...

    A square metre is just a plane - I think you mean a cubic metre

    1 decimeter^3 (10x10x10) = 1 liter
    so
    1 M^3 = 1000 liters

    It'd have a volume of 900m^3, converts to 90000cm^3, divide by 1000 (because 1l=1000cm^3) which gives you 90 litres.

     900m^3 = 900 \times 100^3 cm^3 = 900000000cm^3
