See a solution process below:

Explanation:

#1" gram" = 1000" milligrams"#

So we can write and solve for #g#:

#g/(425000" milligrams") = (1"gram")/(1000" milligrams")#

#color(red)(425000" milligrams") xx g/(425000" milligrams") = color(red)(425000" milligrams") xx (1"gram")/(1000" milligrams")#

#cancel(color(red)(425000" milligrams")) xx g/(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(425000" milligrams")))) = color(red)(425000color(black)(cancel(color(red)(" milligrams")))) xx (1"gram")/(1000color(red)(cancel(color(black)(" milligrams"))))#

#g = color(red)(425000) xx (1"gram")/1000#

#g = color(red)(425color(black)(cancel(color(red)(000)))) xx (1"gram")/color(black)(cancel(color(red)(1000)))#

#g = 425" gram"#
