If you have 60g in 1000 mL you need to know how many grams are in 100 mL to find the percentage.
60/1000 = X/100 mL
6 = X
therefore you have a 6% solution

Your solution is 250mg/mL and you want to add 2.5 g to the IV bag. First you need to change your g to mg so you multiply 2.5 by 1000 and you get 2500 mg.
If you have 250mg in 1 mL and you need to find how many mL you will need for 2500 mg.
2500/X = 250/1
2500 = 250X
10 = X
therefore you need to add 10 mL

if 2.5 grams are added to a 250 ml solution, and there is 250mg/ many milliliters will be added to the bag?
