lb equals 3 tbsp kg

    The volume of the total content is 675 mL, which will be finished in 5 days. Therefore, daily `675/5 = 135` mL of solutions will be taken.

    Now, TID means 3 time(s) a day; therefore, the volume of each dose will be `135/3 = 45` mL.

    Again, tsp is 5 mL and tbsp is 15 mL. Therefore, 45 mL will be equivalent to 3 tbsp. Answer.
