Emilyemily, Emilyemily, dear, we have shown you how to do that several times already. Think, dear. There is no magic in this. If you have 300 total cookies in six boxes, how many cookies are there in each box? If you eat half a box a day, how many cookies will you eat on Tuesday? If you eat half a box a day, how many cookies will you eat on Weds, Thurs, and Fri?
See? It's not that hard.
First: If you have 2 grams in 500 ml, how do you figure out how many mg there are in 500 ml?
Then: How do you figure out how many mg in 1 ml?
Then: How many mg are there in 60 ml?
Show your work and I hope nobody gives it to you here because you need, desperately, to figure out how to think about these kinds of problems.
