Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can look at the ratios there 300 mg for 3 mL means 100 mg for 1 mL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which is not low enough, can you think of how to get it to 85 mg for some other mL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we arent turning mg to ml we are just trying to figure out the ratios here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example what we did in that middle step there how i got 100 mg for 1 ml is since 300/3 = 100/1 this is the same ratio in the same way 300/3=85/x what should x be to maintain the same ratio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we cross multiply to get it right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you see how 1*100 =100 for the 100/1 case then 85/x x*100=85 so x=0.85

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.185 mg for 0.85 mL so you need to give the patient 0.85 mL of solution
