 Dosage calculations  Bob, please help
Weight  20 pounds 6 ounces
Ordered dose  1.5mg per kilogram per day
recommended dosage from drug label  3mg every 8 hours.
1.What is the individual dose?
to find the individual dose i'll first convert pounds to kg which is 9.26 kg. I will then multiply 1.5 x 9.26 = 13.89 mg. So the individual dose is 13.89 mg.
2.What is the daily dose?
to find the daily dose I would multiply 13.89 x 3 = 41.67 mg.
However,the back of the answer states that individual dose is 4.63mg and daily dose is 13.89 mg.
Why is that?
