I have no idea where to even start with this. It seems like it should be simple, but I have no clue.

The question is...

"In serum, about 55% of total serum calcium is bound. The measurement of ionized (free) calcium with an ISE is 1.10 mM. What is an estimate of the total calcium in this specimen?"

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.
