10:1 Ratio... 10ml Compounding Fluid per 100mg Tablet
by: Anonymous

You need a concentration of 1mg/0.1mL of antibiotic. The antibiotic comes in 100 mg tablets.

This is a fairly simple question unless I am missing something.

How many mLs of compounding fluid should you add to each tablet?

1mg/0.1ml = 100mg tablets/10ml compounding fluid

This is a ratio & proportion type question. The ratio of 1mg/0.1ml is equal to 10mg/1ml and 100mg/10ml. Its a 10:1 ratio.
