For some reason I'm having trouble doing a simple conversion problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A person on a diet loses 6 pound(s) every 30 days. What is the loss rate in milligrams per second?

I get 62.9989, but apparently that answer is wrong, but I'm not sure why. I may have to put it in scientific notation, but I'm not sure what I'm overlooking. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
