The writing here is intended to demonstrate the type of writing that is appropriate for a math discussion, and not intended for students to copy.] For this discussion we are to use Cowling’s Rule to determine the child sized dose of a particular medicine. Cowling’s Rule is a formulawhich converts an adult dose into a child’s dose using the child’s age. As in all literal equationsthis one has more than one variable, in fact it has three variables. They are a= child’s age The formula is d= D(a+ 1)D= adult dose 24 d = child’s dose I have been assigned to calculate a 6-year-old child’s dose of amoxicillin given that the adult dose is 500mg. d= D(a+ 1)The Cowling’s Rule formula24 d= 500(6 + 1)I substituted500 for Dand 6 for a. 24 d= 500(7)Following order of operations I added inside parentheses first.
