ppm means parts per million.

0.05 g NaCl/200 g sample.

#1.

0.05g NaCl/200 g soln = 2.5E-4g NaCl/g soln. Now must multiply numerator and denominator by 1E6 (a million) to give you

2.5E-4*1E6 g NaCl/1E6 g soln = 2.5E2/1E6 g soln = 250 ppm.

#2.

Scale it up by units.

0.05 gNaCl/200 g soln. Multiply by 5 to obtain g NaCl/1000 g soln

0.05*5/200*5 = 0.25 g NaCl/1000 g soln

Now multiply by 1000 to get to a million.

0.25*1000 g NaCl/1000*1000g soln = 250 g NaCl/1,000,000 g soln = 250 ppm.

#3. You do #2 in one step.

0.05g NaCl/200 g soln = 0.05*x/(200*x)

What must x be to get to 1,000,000. That is 1,000,000/200 = 5,000 so multiply both numerator and denominator by 5,000.

0.05*5000 g NaCl/200*5000 =

250 g NaCl/1,000,000 = 250 ppm.
