2000 ml-first, determine how many pounds the client has lost 180 - 175.6 = 4.4 pounds lost then, based on the fact that 1 liter of fluid weighs 2.2 pounds, determine how many liters of fluid have been lost. 4.4 / 2.2 = 2 liters lost then, because the question asks for the answer in milliliters, convert 2 liters into milliliters. 2 x 1000 = 2000 ml test-taking hint: the test taker must be able to work basic math problems. this problem has several steps. sometimes it is helpful to write out what is occurring at each step, such as 4.4 divided by 2.2 kg per pound. this can help the test taker realize if a step has been overlooked.
