###### Question details

I'm confused as to how this answer came to be. This kind of math concerns dimensional Analysis for medical dosage. A label for Octreotide drug reads "50 mcg subcut q8h". The correct answer on the syringe is 0.1 ml on the provided 1.0 ml syringe. How did the answer go from 50mcg to 0.1 ml on the syringe? Initially I assumed that 50 mcg = 0.05 mg and 0.05mg = 0.05 ml (because 1mg equals 1 ml)
