lb equals 1 tbsp kg

    The volume of the total content is 180 mL, which will be finished in 6 days. Therefore, daily `180/6 = 30` mL of solutions will be taken.

    Now, BID means 2 time(s) a day; therefore, the volume of each dose will be `30/2 = 15` mL.

    Again, tsp is 5 mL and tbsp is 15 mL. Therefore, 15 mL will be equivalent to 1 tbsp. Answer.
