(ordered) D5W at 30 mL/hr for continuous infusion with medication x 60 mg q6h to be infused over 20 minutes by volume control set

How many mLs IV fluid do I add to chamber?
My textbook says the answer is 8 but I can't seem to get that number. What formula should I use or how did they come up with 8?
