You cannot solve this equation from the data provided. The equation is expressed incorrectly. This is clear because X (the unknown) represents two different things in the equation.

Your sum says that 10 mg is the same of an unknown quantity (X) of teaspoons.
You are then asserting that 1/8 of a teaspoon is also X mg.

This clearly cannot be the case.

It seems like what you are trying to express here is the following:

10mg = an unknown quantity (X) of teaspoons.
How many mg is the equivalent to 1/8 of a teaspoon?

You cannot provide an answer to this equation as there is insufficient data to do the calculation. You need to know how many teaspoons 10 mg is equivalent to in order to calculate the mg for 1/8 of a teaspoon.

What you can do is express the answer as a formula.

A formula is a syntactic object that can be given a semantic meaning. In other words, it's an expression where letters can be given meanings. In your example the syntactic letter of X has been given the semantic meaning of 'the equivalent teaspoons of 10 mg'.

Usage of formulas is part of logic in mathematics. They allow you to express unknowns and the relationships between them. In schools, this is usually taught when children get to around the age of 14.

It is a common stumbling block for many youngsters who are used to having to make calculations when all of the numbers in the sum are accounted for. But logic is one of the most useful forms of mathematics for later life.

Think of a recipe. If you want to make a batch of 20 cakes but your recipe is only for 13, you can use logical calculations to work out the measurements you will need to adjust the recipe.

There is no direct conversion from mg to teaspoon. Approximately
4000 milligrams equal one level tsp. So 10 MG=0.0025 teaspoon. By this way 1/8 teaspoon would be equal to 500 MG and 1/16 tsp=250 MG

Tabby is my 15 pound cat with snot nose, sneezing and a little wheezing. Before I take tabby to the vet and pay my arms, legs, eyes, nose, teeth and any other body parts I have along with every last dime in my pocket because vets have become as bad as people doctors with their greed and no longer into saving the animal same as doctors are no longer into saving lives unless the ultimate price is paid to them so that they can live fine lives while we all go into the poor house. I personally do not go to any doctor unless I am in such pain I just can't take it of which I have gone to the doctor three times in the past twenty years. I have spent more money in pets going to the vet than I have in myself going to the doctor and I am past sick of that too so I will do what I can myself and if it means I myself die then so be it as I would rather be dead than to continue supporting such greed as there is today.

ANYHOW ... For tabby I have figured this:
With google calculator here is how I am working this:

Directions state to give 10 milligrams per pound for 14 days:
10 milligrams per pound for 15 pound cat is 150 milligrams so I need to know for 150 milligrams to teaspoons which can't be done so first I have to take it to ounces and then ounces to teaspoons OR SO I THINK haha ...

150 milligrams to ounces = 0.00529109429 ounces
so I figure I need to get as close to 0.00529109429 ounces as I can ...
0.00529109429 ounces to teaspoon = 0.0317465657 teaspoons ...
So I figure I need to get as close to 0.0317465657 teaspoons as I can ...

*ounces to one eighth teaspoon = 0.0208333333 is a little under 0.0317465657 teaspoons
*ounces to one fourth teaspoon = 0.0416666667 is a little over 0.0317465657 teaspoons
I need 0.0317465657 teaspoons so between one eighth and one fourth teaspoon:
If this is correct then I would be safe to give one eighth of a teaspoon for sure and I might be safe to give in total one eighth of a teaspoon and one half of an eighth of a teaspoon for the day hahaha which I guess one half of one eighth of a teaspoon is one sixteenths but I only have a one eighth measuring spoon so is why I say one eighth plus one half of one eighth.

I don't know if I have done right or wrong but it beats paying out my arse to find out !!
Medical doctors suck and now vets suck even worse !!
The rich get richer as the poor get poorer and the rich can all kiss my pretty white curvy southern rebel behind !!

My puppy has hives. I gave him 1-1/2 teaspoons of benadryl and he went to sleep within 10 minutes. Did I give him too much? He weighs 8 pounds.
