**DrBob222**, Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 2:07pmIt isn't clear in the problem that this is 1.75 g aspirin tablet/kg or 1.75 g active ingredient/kg.

I assume the problem means 1.75 g of active ingredient/kg body weight.

Convert 155 g body weight to kg. That will be 155 pounds x (2.2 kg/1 pound)= ?kg

Then kg body weight x (1 tablet/0.32g) = x tablets.
