lb equals 1 : 300 kg

    3.333 mg/mL means, the solution contains 3.333 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 3.333 mg as 0.003 g. Thus, for this solution, we can write:
    `(0.003333\quad g)/(1\quad mL)=((0.003333/0.003333) \quad g)/((1/0.003333) \quad mL)`
    `=(1\quad g)/(300\quad mL)`.
    This is equivalent to 1 : 300. Answer.
