Based on Thomas' weight of 15 lb 6 oz, which is approximately 6.976 kg, the recommended daily dose of the medication for him would be 348.8 mg/day (50 mg/kg/day * 6.976 kg). Since Thomas is prescribed to receive the medication q6h (every 6 hours), this dose should be divided into four doses per day. To determine the amount of medication Thomas should receive per dose, we need to divide the total daily dose by the number of doses per day: 348.8 mg/day / 4 doses = 87.2 mg/dose Therefore, Thomas should receive 87.2 mg of the medication per dose.

Based on Thomas' weight of 15 lb 6 oz, which is approximately 6.976 kg, the recommended daily dose of the medication for him would be 348.8 mg/day (50 mg/kg/day * 6.976 kg). Since Thomas is prescribed to receive the medication q6h (every 6 hours), this dose should be divided into four doses per day.

To determine the amount of medication Thomas should receive per dose, we need to divide the total daily dose by the number of doses per day:

348.8 mg/day / 4 doses = 87.2 mg/dose

Therefore, Thomas should receive 87.2 mg of the medication per dose.

The label states that there is 400 mg of the drug in 10 ml suspension. To determine how much suspension should be given to provide 87.2 mg of the drug, we can use the following proportion:

400 mg / 10 ml = 87.2 mg / x

Solving for x, we get:

x = (87.2 mg * 10 ml) / 400 mg = 2.18 ml

Therefore, Thomas should receive 2.18 ml of the medication per dose.

348.8 mg/day / 4 doses = 87.2 mg/dose

To determine the amount of medication Thomas should receive per dose, we need to calculate the dose based on his weight.

Thomas weighs approximately 6.976 kg (15 lb 6 oz). The recommended dose of the medication for infants is 50 mg/kg/day.

So, Thomas's daily dose would be: 50 mg/kg/day * 6.976 kg = 348.8 mg/day

Since Thomas is prescribed to receive the medication every 6 hours (q6h), and there are 24 hours in a day, he should receive the total daily dose divided by the number of doses per day:

348.8 mg/day / 4 doses = 87.2 mg/dose

Therefore, Thomas should receive approximately 87.2 mg of the medication per dose.

Solution:

15.375 lb * 0.4536 kg/lb 6.976 kg

6.976 kg * 50 mg/kg/day = 348.8 mg/day

348.8 mg/day / 4 doses = 87.2 mg/dose

Solution:

15.375 lb * 0.4536 kg/lb 6.976 kg

6.976 kg * 50 mg/kg/day = 348.8 mg/day

8 is to 32 as 1 is to 4

Solution:

8/32 = 1/x

8x = 32

x = 32/8

x = 4

Solution:

8/32 = 1/x

8x = 32

x = 32/8

x = 4

This answer has been confirmed as correct and helpful.

To find the missing term in the analogy "8 is to 32 as 1 is to X," we can use the same ratio between the two given terms and apply it to the missing term.

The ratio between 8 and 32 can be found by dividing 32 by 8:

32 / 8 = 4

So, the ratio is 4. To find the missing term, we multiply 1 by this ratio:

1 * 4 = 4

Therefore, the missing term in the analogy is 4.

The ratio between 8 and 32 can be found by dividing 32 by 8:

32 / 8 = 4

So, the ratio is 4. To find the missing term, we multiply 1 by this ratio:

1 * 4 = 4

Therefore, the missing term in the analogy is 4.
