lb equals 0.127 g kg

    Volume of each dose (1 mL) = 1 mL.
    Number of dose per day (BID) = 2
    Numder of days the bottle is supplied for (6 days) = 6
    Therefore, volume of the medication in the bottle = 1 × 2 × 6 mL = 12 mL.
    Given that, there is 10.6 mg drug contained in each dose (1 mL). Therefore, we can write:

    `(10.6\quad mg)/(1\quad mL)=x/(12 \quad mL)`
    `therefore x = 127.2 \quad mg = 0.1272\quad g` Ans.
