Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know that 500mg is related to 500mL; that is,\[500mg \iff 500mL\]But that's the same as (after dividing both sides by 500),\[1mg \iff 1mL\]but again, that's the same as\[\frac{1mg}{h} \iff \frac{1mL}{h}\]which again is the same as\[\frac{80mg}{h}\iff \frac{80mL}{h}\]
