Calculate the Medical Dosage.
Given that a saline medicine bottle contains 5 milligrams
of Tylenol for each 9 ml of saline
solution in which it is dissolved.
Grandma Wilson, who weighs 188 pounds needs
25 milligrams of Tylenol per 50 kilograms of body
weight for an I.V. How many ml of saline must she be administered?
Note: 1kilogram=2.2pounds
