Answer:

#2700*mL#

Explanation:

The #"m"# prefix in #mL# means #"milli"#, i.e. #xx10^-3#.

And thus #(1*L)/(1*mL)=(1*cancelL)/(1*xx10^-3cancelL)=1/(10^-3)=1/(1/1000)=1000#, i.e. a #10^3# factor as required.

Note the arithmetic, #b/a^-1=b/(1/a)=axxb#, this is an important result for such dimensional analysis, as you can see in the given example.
