Additional assignment. Please attach final answer and calculations with your application:

In February, a building’s space heating boiler used 1500 m³ of gas, with the average temperature for the month being -5 °C. In March, the building replaced the boiler with a new high-efficiency model. The following month, in April, the new boiler used 900 m³ of gas, with the average temperature for the month being 2 °C. Knowing the building’s balance point temperature is 16 °C, calculate the m³ of gas saved in April.
