How many liters of oil are required to supply the electrical energy needs of an average home for a month?

Energy released by burning 1 liter of oil= 1.2 x 10(7th power)
Electrical energy used in an average home daily 5 X 10 (7th power)

I got 125 liters. Is that correct?

• Math -

yes, correct using 30 days per month
