cubic meters to area

I have been trying to work this problem for awhile and wondered if I could get some help, please?  Here is the question:
Suppose a 0.6 cubic meter of oil is spilled into the ocean.  Find the area of the resulting slick, assuming that it is one molecule thick, and that each molecule occupies a cube .30 x 10 to the -6th power.  The answer should be in square meters.

The formula would be:
Area = Volume / Height

Area = 0.6 cubic meter / 0.30e-6 meters = 2,000,000 square meters
