For SPQR ONLY!!!
Read the following instructions in order to complete this discussion, and review the example of how to complete the math required for this assignment:
- Read about Cowling’s Rule for child sized doses of medication (number 92 on page 119 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra).
Solve parts (a) and (b) of the problem using the following details indicated for the first letter of your last name:
If your lastname starts with letter For part (a) of problem 92 use this information to calculate the child’s dose. For part (b) of problem 92 use this information to calculate the child’s age. A or Z adult dose 400mg ibuprofen; 5 year old child 800mg adult, 233mg child C or X adult dose 500mg amoxicillin; 11 year old child 250mg adult, 52mg child E or V adult dose 1000mg acetaminophen; 8 year old child 600mg adult, 250mg child G or T adult dose 75mg Tamiflu; 6 year old child 500mg adult, 187mg child I or R adult dose 400mg ibuprofen; 7 year old child 1200mg adult,200mg child K or P adult dose 500mg amoxicillin; 9 year old child 100mg adult, 12.5mg child M or N adult dose 1000mg acetaminophen: 6 year old child 600mg adult, 200mg child O or L adult dose 75mg Tamiflu; 11 year old child 1000mg adult, 600mg child Q or J adult dose 400mg ibuprofen; 8 year old child 500mg adult, 250mg child S or H adult dose 500mg amoxicillin; 4 year old child 300mg adult, 100mg child U or F adult dose 1000mg acetaminophen; 3 year old child 75mg adult, 12.5mg child W or D adult dose 75mg Tamiflu; 5 year old child 1200mg adult, 300mg child Y or B adult dose 400mg ibuprofen; 2 year old child 400mg adult, 50mg child
- Explain what the variables in the formula represent and show all steps in the computations.
Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.):
- Literal equation
- Conditional equation
Your initial post should be 150-250 words in length. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Do you agree with how your classmates used the vocabulary? Do the mathematical results seem reasonable?
