A)The Cowling’s Rule will help me convert the adult’s 500mg of amoxicillin to determine how much of a dosage should be given to an 11 year old child. It is a formula that will be done as a literal equationbecause it has a variety of variables.The variables are a = child’s ageD = adult ageD = child’s dose The formula will be determined as d = D (a+1)24In order to determine the dosage to be given I have to calculate the given formula to workout and get the end result.First, the formula will read as the Cowling’s Rule and then I will substitutethe mg dosage for the adult dose and the child’s age. I then added everything inside of the parenthesis. Next I multiplied the 500mg by 12, which was my answer from adding the integers in the parenthesis. Finally I divided 6000 by 24 to get my answer of 250. d = D (a+1)d = 500 (11 +1) d = 500(12)d = 6000d = 25024 24 24 24 The dosage to be given to an 11 year old child would be 250mg.B)In the second part to this discussion I need to solve a literal equation and find out
