18 -- 100mg Tablets in 120ML of Cherry Syrup
by: Shane

Multiply 15mg/ml by 120ml = 1800

1800 divided by 100mg pills = 18 - 100mg pills

Atenolol Compound Question
by: David Shedd

First, you have to multiply the amount of liquid by the strength of the compound: 120 ml X 15mg = 1800mg. Then you divide 100 into 1800 to equal 18 tablets. You need 18 - 100mg Atenolol tablets to fill the prescription for the compound.

Thanks for your question!
