The baby was overmedicated by a factor of 4.9

Work Step by Step

We can convert $3/4~tsp$ to units of $mL$: $3/4~tsp \times \frac{4.9~mL}{1~tsp} = 3.675~mL$ We can find the factor that the baby was overmedicated: $\frac{3.675~mL}{0.75~mL} = 4.9$ The baby was overmedicated by a factor of 4.9, which is the conversion factor from units of $tsp$ to units of $mL$
