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

You must have meant 1/16th of a premeasured 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.
