Weegy: These are simple dimensional analysis problems. You look at what units they want the answer in, and you multiply and divide whatever you're given until you end up with the units. I'll do 1. [ You do the rest. You need 20 mg of Tobramycin, and you are given them in 30mg/2mL vials. So the conversion factor is: 30 mg = 2 mL; 15 mg = 1 mL So: 20 mg (1 mL / 15 mg) = 1.33 mL You need to administer 1.33 mL Tobramycin solution q24hr. ]

User: There is 4 ml of grape flavoring to every 100ml of 200mg Amoxicillin. The patient wants apple. You can add 1/5 the amount of apple as you can grape. How many milliliters of apple would you use to flavor 300 ml of Amoxicillin?

Weegy: You would add 15 ml to flavor 300 ml of Amoxicillin.

User: The doctor would like to write a prescription for 5 ml of Erythromycin antibiotic saline solution, but he is unsure of the strength that the pharmacy has on hand. Your pharmacy stocks 750 mg of Erythromycin in a 10 ml vial, what would be the recommended dosage to the physician

Weegy: 375mg of Erythromycin

The doctor writes a prescription for an insufflation for 500 mg of Amoxicillin for an adult. The active ingredient Amoxicillin is combined with a medium of Calcium Carbonate. There is a 1:3 ratio of Amoxicillin to Calcium Carbonate. For an insufflation of 300 mg, there will be 75 mg of Amoxicillin, and 225 mg of calcium carbonate. 300 / (1+3) = 75. 1 part = 1 x 75 = 75 mg. 3 parts = 3 x 75 = 225 mg.

There is 4 ml of grape flavoring to every 100ml of 200mg Amoxicillin. The patient wants apple. You can add 1/5 the amount of apple as you can grape. So for every 100ml, you can add 4/5 = 0.8ml of apple. 300ml is then 0.8 x 3 = 2.4ml of apple.
