    Answer:

    No, the pharmacy technician did not perform the calculation correctly.

    Explanation:

    To convert Milligrams (mg) to Micrograms (mcg), you just need to know that 1mg is equal to 1000mcg. With that knowledge, you can solve any other similar conversion problem by multiplying the number of Milligrams (mg) by 1000. For example, 5mg multiplied by 1000 is equal to 5000mcg.

    1 t…0.25 mg…250 mcg  

    1/2 t…0.125 mg….125 mcg
