As I'm trying to set up a problem involving Avagodro's number calculation,
the units for N might be molecules/mol, particles/mole, or something/mol.

To have an answer where one is calculating the number of molecules, say, the
"unit" of the answer would be molecules.  Yet LON-CAPA doesn't accept that
as a unit.  Is there a way to append a string to a numerical answer?
