    Thanks for the info David!

    Multiplication? Might be very simple for you but I am "math challenged" - ha, ha. I'm afraid I'm going to wash out of math homework help when my daughter gets to 5th grade!

    If you want a ballpark, and easy math, then just use 20 as the conversion factor. It's close enough and easy. So 100 mg converts to 5 mmol.
