One 250mg tablet is made up of chemical A , B, ,C in a ratio 3:2:5. The Pharmacist Has 60mg of chemical B left. How much of Chemical A and C does she need if she uses 60mg of B?

  • Math Lit -

    3+2+5 = 10
    250/10 = 25

    75:50:125 is the required ratio for one tablet

    we have 60mg of B, which is enough for 1.2 tablets

    So, in theory, if she uses 60mg of B, she will end up using

    90:60:150 mg of A:B:C

    But who makes 1.2 pills?
