I have recently sat an exam and failed on one question but I do not understand how.

Here is the question:

A child has been prescribed 0.5 g vancomycin in 100 mL sodium chloride 0.9%. This must be infused at a rate not exceeding 10 mg/min. What is the rate in mL/hr?

The Formulation I used is dose prescribed in mg (500) divided by maximum infusion rate (10mg/min). Can anyone tell me where I have gone wrong please?
