First convert the person weight in pounds to kg: 1 kg = 2.2 lbs so, this person weight in kg is 170 lbs:2.2 lbs/kg = 77.27 kg we know that the dose the person can received is 6 mg/kg. In this case, the person weight is 77.27 kg, so the mg dose he/she will received is: 6 mg/kg x 77.27 kg = 463.62 mg However, this dose (if for medication) sounds like too much because it almost 0.5 kg (500 mg). Most of the time, dosing based on body weight is for pediatrics (infant and children).
