If the strength of a solution is written as 1.429 mg/mL, then how will it be expressed in ratio strength?

lb equals 1 : 700 kg

    1.429 mg/mL means, the solution contains 1.429 mg of drug in each 1 mL. In order to express the ratio strength, we must keep the numerator in gram unit, also, the numerator should be equal to 1.
    Since 1000 mg equals 1 g, we can write 1.429 mg as 0.001 g. Thus, for this solution, we can write:
    `(0.001429\quad g)/(1\quad mL)=((0.001429/0.001429) \quad g)/((1/0.001429) \quad mL)`
    `=(1\quad g)/(700\quad mL)`.
    This is equivalent to 1 : 700. Answer.
