lb equals 2998.05 mg kg

    86.9 PPM means, there is 86.9 g of drug in each 1,000,000 g of the mixture.
    34.5 kilogram means 34500 grams. Therefore, we can write:
    `(86.9 \quad g)/(1,000,000\quad g)=x/(34500\quad g) therefore x = 2.99805` g.

    Now, this g unit has to be converted to mg.
    `(1000\quad mg)/(1\quad g)= y/(2.99805\quadg) therefore y = 2998.05` mg Ans.
