You’re working in a pharmacy, and are making a table to help with dosage amounts for a certain drug. The recommended dosage is 40 milligrams per 2.2 pounds of body weight, divided into three daily doses and taken every 8 hours. You want entries for children weighing 10 pounds, 15 pounds and 30 pounds. The drug comes in a 200 mg5 ml formula. If 1 teaspoon = 5 ml, how many teaspoons are required for each entry? Round your answer to the nearest 14 teaspoon.

 

 

1, 112 , 234

 

181, 272, 545.5

 

10, 15, 30

4.5, 7, 13

 

so what im thinking is 

setting up a proporition for each like 

 

40/2.2=x/10 = 181.8

40/2.2=x/15=272.2

40/2.2=x/30=545.4

 

i dont know what im doing lol...
