Suppose a patient must take a blood pressure medication that is dispensed in 125-milligram tablets. The dosage is 15 milligrams per kilogram of body weight and is given every 8 hrs. If the patient weighs 25 milligrams, how many tablets would be needed for a 30-day supply?

u neab 25 pounds or 25 kilograms cuz u mistyped

EDIT- i guess u meant kilos.. so just find out how many mgs that a person that weighs 25 kgs would take then if they are takin it 3 times a day multiply the mg answer u got by 3 and multiply that by 30... after that divide that answer by 125 and there u go

That person needs a new doctor, if they don't know how much of their medicine they're supposed to take.

ambiguity in the weight of the person, if he really weighs in milligrams :push the results would be stupendous, 375 * 10 -9 grams of dosage for every 8 hours, that makes 3 times a day of the tablet to just 1 tablet cut into many pieces :tounge


the man should weigh in Kilo's please

25 mg or 25 Kg?

If 25 kilos..

3 every eight hours, 9 a day, and 270 every 30 days, I think.

15 X 25 (assuming u meant kilos not milligrams) = 375 but this is just for 8 hours

375 X 3 = 1125 for 1 day

1125 X 30 = 33750 For the month (this is milligrams of the dosage)

33750/125 = amount of tablets = 270

So its 270 tablets for a month
