Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it might be easier to use 1000 mg = 1 g 1000 mL = 1 L that's just my opinion though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is one way to set up \[\Large \frac{570 \text{ mg}}{1 \text{ mL}} \times \frac{1000 \text{ mL}}{1 \text{ L}} \times \frac{1 \text{ g}}{1000 \text{ mg}} \]
