    The problem here is that you don't seem to have done any unit conversions. The volume you are given is 140 cubic cm, but you have put 140 cubic m into the equation.

    How many cubic metres are there in 140 cubic centimetres?

    Certainly is! I wonder if the error is with the reproduction of the question...

    (Might be a room in a model house!)

    Well it's not now that you've edited your first post!

    Based on the real question, yes, this is right. Not sure why it's a unit conversion question, though - no units have been converted...
