lb equals 1 : 760 kg

    The strength 0.132 % w/v means, there is 0.132 g of drug dissolved in each 100 mL of the solution. We need to convert this to a suitable ratio which has 1 in the numerator. Therefore, `(0.132 \quad g)/(100\quad mL)=((0.132/0.132)\quad g)/(100/0.132\quad mL)=(1\quad g)/(760\quad mL)`.

    Therefore, the ratio strength is 1 : 760.
