lb equals 2.326 mg/mL kg

    1 : 430 means, 1 g of drug is present in each 430 mL of the solution.

    First, determine the gram amount of drug present per 1 mL of the solution. Then, the gram will be changed to mg. `therefore (1 \quad g)/(430 \quad mL)=x/(1 \quad mL) therefore x = 1/430 ` g.

    Now, convert this gram unit into mg unit:
    `(1000\quad mg)/(1\quad g) = y/(1/430\quad g)`
    `therefore y = 2.326` mg.
    `therefore 2.326` mg/mL is the answer.
