% of concentration means what?
1:1,000 means what
to convert from % to mg/mL what do u do
move decimal point one place to the right
ex 2% = 20mg/ml 3%= 30mg/mL 0.9%= 9mg/mL
to convert 1:100,000, 1:500,000 to mcg/mL what do you do?
divide denominator by 1,000,000
ex 1:100,000 = 10mcg/ml (also if you keep the same and do it divided to 1,000 it will give u g/mL then you can convert that into mcg/mL)
ex 1:100,000 = 0.01g/mL then move decimal for mcg 10mcg/mL either way works
remember Large and Small in the alphabet and move the decimal 3 spaces in that direction
10 mg to mcg
move the decimal 3 spots to the right 10,000 mcg
