lb equals 5 tsp kg

    The volume of the total content is 350 mL, which will be finished in 7 days. Therefore, daily `350/7 = 50` mL of solutions will be taken.

    Now, BID means 2 time(s) a day; therefore, the volume of each dose will be `50/2 = 25` mL.

    Again, tsp is 5 mL and tbsp is 15 mL. Therefore, 25 mL will be equivalent to 5 tsp. Answer.
