A child's dose of medicine is 16
of a pre-measured dose cup. If the bottle of medicine is the size of 9
dose cups, how many children's doses are there in the bottle?

  • Math 156 -

    You must have meant 1/16th of a pre-measured dose cup.

    If so, then the number of doses in the bottle is 9 รท (1/16) = 144

    If it is as you typed it, better call 911.
