B) If the medication is given qid x 10 days, will the 150ml bottle be enough?

**PsyDAG**, Monday, December 3, 2007 at 11:20amYou need to convert pounds to kg to solve A. Then multiply it by the 5 mg to get total mg/dose.

250mg/5ml = total mg/?ml for A.

150/(total[?] ml*4*10) will answer B.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
