2 * 5 * 1.2 = 12 cubic metres of oil
12 * 1000 = 1200 litres
Thanks for that. What about this one? I've never covered this, I'm in Y7 and missed the last 2 days of schools because I was poorly.

Water used by shower:
Calculate the water used by multiplying the amount of water used per minute by the amount of time

Water used by bath:
Calculate the volume of the bath and convert to litres (by dividing by 1000)

Water saved:
Water used by bath - water used by shower
