Alayna, I appreciate your question! This might be a difficult question for some people who are new to pharmacy, such as new pharmacy techs. I will walk you through the question until we get to the answers.
2 tablets x 3 times per day = 6 tablets total each day
The days supply for this question is 14 days, so now we multiply 6 x 14 and we come up with 84. So 84 tablets are needed to fill the prescription for a 14 days supply.
Now we can answer the first question, which is how many full bottles are needed? If you mean by this that you can only use a full bottle without going over on the tablets, then you would use 5 full bottles (5x15=75 tablets). The second question is how many additional tablets would you need?
To answer this 84-75=9. You need 9 additional tablets to fill this prescription for a 14 days supply at the sig/directions listed.
