    1 gram is equal to 1000 milligrams, therefor 15 grams is equal to 15,000 milligrams.

    15*10^3= 15000mg

    (multiply the mass value by 1000 because there are 1000 mg in a gram)

    multiply by 1000 mg/g. Very simple conversion.

    1 gram = 1000 mg

    15 grams x 1000 mg/gram = 15,000 mg

    See, got the same answer as the others. It must be correct.

    For future reference, Google will tell you. Type in "15 grams to milligrams"

    It's 15000mg

    The conversion factor for milligrams is 1000mg/1g (one thousand milligrams per one gram)

    So 15g x (1000mg/1g) = 15000mg (grams cancel out leaving you with mg)
