Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.09.0mg * 1g/1000mg * 1.5mL/minute * 60minutes/hour * 4.5hours should be what you/re looking for.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{9.0mg(NaCl)}{1mL(NaCl)}*\frac{1.5mL(NaCl)}{1\min}*\frac{60\min}{1hr}*\frac{1g(NaCl)}{1000mg(NaCl)}*\frac{4.5hr}{1}=3.6g(NaCl)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why can you go 1ml/9.0mg? And where did you get the 1 underneath 4.5gr?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because there are 9.0mg of NaCl PER mL of solution. The one means nothing. It's just to make it more readable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry. To answer your first question, you can use 1mL/9.0mg. I just chose the reciprocal. You will get the same answer either way if you follow the units.
