Your solution has a volume of 6.0 L.

Molarity is defined as moles of solute per liters of solution. This means that if you have 1 mole of a solute in 1 L of solution you'll get a 1 M solution.

SInce you know both the number of moles of solute present, and the actual molarity of the solution, you can determine its volume by

#C = n/V => V = n/C#

In your case, the volume of the solution will be

#V = (7.2cancel("moles"))/(1.2cancel("moles")/"L") = color(green)("6.0 L")#
