First, what is an mg?  Do you mean megabyte?  MB?

Assuming that's the case, the conversion tool is simple math.  A floppy is 1.44 MB - 750 divided by 1.44 - it's that simple.

Next problem though, it's there's no such thing as a 750 MB CD.  There's 650 MB.  And 700 MB, but not 750.  Now, if you REQUIRE me to do the math for you, it's 486 Floppies to one 700 MB CD.

Depends upon how you measure a megabyte too.

A megabyte is actually 1024 Kbytes.

But the marketing folks round down to a 1000 kbytes.

So depending upon whose math you use,the capacity can vary.

Yes, when you divide based on actual bytes the computer sees, the number is 487 floppies.

I think the question should be how many floppies can you stack on a 1GB drive.  A lot, but then gravity could easily topple it.
