The amtibiotic comes in an oral suspension in a concentration of 100mh/5ml, and is available in a 150 ml bottle. one bottle of antibiotic costs 600.00.

im guessing it's mg/mL..
you need every 8 hours for 10 days.. 24hrsx10 days = 240 hrs
100mg/mL and you need 300mg.. so 15mL is what you need per dose.
so 30 doses x 15 mL = 450mL in total
150mL per bottle. so 450/150= 3 bottles
3 bottles x $600/bottle= $1800
you need 3 bottles and your total cost is $1800.
ps. this is more math related than "health science" related
