Not calculable from given information; the ball screw backlash is basically independent of the gearbox, except for the small contribution of 5 arcmin ÷ (screw threads per unit).

The calculation part (which is virtually irrelevant) needs also to be divided by 360 degrees. (That just makes the screw backlash even smaller.)

If a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half, how many hens to lay six eggs in six days?

NO, YOU DO NOT!

The question is nonsense posted as homework.

You may need to move a mass.

You may need to arrive at a location with some precision.

Please note, that in these statements neither a screw nor its precision was mentioned as any possible factor.

Restate your question in some sane fashion.

It's a matter of the gear ratio. Please draw a picture showing all dimensions and gear ratios, and label what is known and what it wanted. Then we will have a chance of helping you.
