I have a problem solving.
An oil spill is 6 cubic meters, and the thickness is 0,002 cubic meters.
How many kilometers is it?
Please show how you solved it! I don't understand

I would expect the problem to say something like this:
An oil spill covers an area of 6 cubic meters, and the thickness is 0,002 meters.
How many cubic meters is it?
A thickness can't be measured in cubic meters (a unit of volume), and there is no length in kilometers that can be determined.
If the problem is as I suggest, then you can find the volume using the formula V = Bh, where B is the area of the base and h is the "height" (thickness, in this case).
Yes, I didn't correct everything I meant to. Read it as
An oil spill covers an area of 6 square meters, and the thickness is 0,002 meters.
How many cubic meters is it?
So, is that what it really says?
