Clark's Rule is commonly used to calculate the childresn's dosage of medication:

Clark's Rule is: C=A x W/150

Use the rule to calulate thr problem

C- child's dose
W=weight of child in pounds

How much would a child need to weigh to receive the adult dosage if the adult dosage 80 cc?

Ask yourself the question in a different way — how could you manipulate the weight factor, so C = A?

I'll let you think about it.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
