370 mg = .370 g, so 3.7 g is greater.

G

520.8g

The milli- prefix means one thousandth (1/1000), thus: 1000 mg = 1000 × 1/1000 g = 1 g By converting to the same units a comparison can be made: 5g = 5 × 1000 mg = 5000 mg > 43 mg Thus 5 g is greater than 43 mg.

580 mg is greater than 5 g. This is because 1 g is equal to 1000 mg. Therefore, 5 g is equal to 5000 mg, making 580 mg less than 5 g.

5 g is greater than 508 mg.

1 g = 1000 mg thus 1.5 g = 1500 g. Note that the symbol for 'gram' is 'g', not 'gm'.

mg stands for milligram or 1/1000 of a gram. So 43 mg is 43/1000 of a gram or 0.043 g. Comparing 0.043 g to 5 g, it's clear that 5 g is greater.
