lb equals 842 mg kg

    The volume of the total content is 120 mL, which contains 5.052 g of the drug, or 5052 mg of the drug.
    Volume contained in each dose (2 tsp) = 10 mL.
    Number of dose per day (BID) = 2
    Therefore, volume of solution administered per day = 10 × 2 mL = 20 mL.
    Therefore, we can write:
    `(120\quad mL)/(5052\quad mg) = (20\quad mL)/x therefore x = 842\quad mg` Ans.
