    That's 4 times 14 times 9 = 504cm^3=5.04m^3.

    I changed the units from cm^3 to m^3. Since 1m = 100cm, 1m^3 = 100cm^3 so you can divide 504cm^3 by 100 to get 5.04m^3.

    No - sorry. My mistake. There are 1,000,000cm^3 in 1m^3. The correct answer is just 504cm^3.

    100cm x 100cm x 100cm = (100)^3 x (cm)^3 = (100cm)^3 = 1m^3.
