One dose is 10ml.

Therefore, six doses is 60ml.

Subtract 60 from what you started with and you have your answer. You are trying to confuse strength in mg (weight) with ml (volume).

A ton of lead weighs the same as a ton of feathers. One will have a vast amount of volume over the other.

90 ml is what would be left after 6 doses.

520mg/5ml * 2 = 1040mg/10ml = 1 dose = 10ml
6 dose = 60ml
150ml - 60ml = 90ml
