0.0625/0.05= 1.25
That is already 3 sig figs.

Maybe it's not that simple- I know about numbers but not medicine.
1.25ml. 0.0625 divided by 0.05

625 divided by 5. 1.2t
yes FF has it( as usual )
I think they want
.05mg in 1 ml ( remembering to pay attention to weights and volumes)
.01mg in 1/5 ml = 0.2 ml
multiply each side by 6.25
so 0.0625mg in 0.2 x 6.25 or 1.25 ml
