    I would suggest to first convert to grams, then to Mg.

    (1. 450000ng * 10^-9grams 1ng = .0045grams 2.) /0045grams * 1Mg 10^6 grams =4.5*10^-10Mg

    Assuming thast your original number is \[4.50 \times 10^{5} ng\] and that you want the number of mg, all you need to do is reduce the exponent by 6. (There are 1,000,000 ng in a mg.) That leaves you with \[4.50 \times 10^{-1} mg\].
