how many cubic meters of dirt are in a hole 6 meters long,2 meters wide, and one meter deep?

The volume of the hole will be the length X width X depth. It's always good to be sure that units for each dimension are the same. In this problem, they are all in meters.
Volume = length X width X depth
Volume = 6m X 2m X 1m
Multiply the right side to get the volume.
Remember that the units for the volume will be m^3 (cubic meters). 
0 (m^3). No dirt is in a hole. A hole is empty.
