if the doctor prescribes you to take 1 gram of cholesterol per day and the pharmacy is out of 1 gram tablets but give her 250 mg tablets. How many pills would give her 1 gram per day?

Cholesterol medication maybe but no one takes cholesterol on purpose, do they?

1 gram = 1000 milligrams, so: 1000 mg / 250 mg = 4 - 250 mg pills = 1 gram of medication.
