Answer:

#=4/5g or 0.8g#

Explanation:

#1g = 1000mg#

#therefore 1mg = 1/1000g#

#800mg = 1/1000g * 800#

#=800/1000g#

#=8/10g#

#=4/5g or 0.8g#

Answer:

#0.800*g#

Explanation:

#"mg"# #-=# #"milligram"# #-=# #10^-3*g#.

Clearly, there are #10^3*mg*g^-1#.

And thus #(800*cancel(mg))/(10^3*cancel(mg)*g^-1)=0.800*g.#

(Because #(1)/(g^-1)=1/(1/g)=g# as required...........)
