Capacity in maths - do teachers drink enough coffee to fill a bath?

In year 5 children have been studying capacity.  They planned an investigation to find out if staff at Mapledene drink enough coffee in a year to fill a bath!

Having collated the data from staff the children found the average capacity of teacher's mugs and the average capacity of a bath to come up with their conclusions:

Staff at Mapledene drink enough coffee in a year to fill 12 baths!  The children are now trying to calculate the amount of tea and initial data shows that it will be many more baths than the coffee!
