Find Resistance with an Ohmmeter

In the ohmmeter circuit shown, the voltage drop across the ammeter and the internal resistance of the 1.5V battery are negligible. The variable resistor R is adjusted to give full-scale deflection of the micoammeter when R_x is zero. Find the numerical value of R. (See attachment for diagram)
