Cowling's rule is a formula for determining the child's dosage of a drug. For this rule, the formula is : d = D ( a + 1 ) 24 This rule is a literal equation since the age of the child, dosage of the adult and dosage of the child are represented using variables, where a represents the age of the child, D represents the dosage of the adult and d represents the dosage of the child. In my case a = 4, D = 500 so am supposed to work out using the Cowling’s rule and have a and D substituted with 9 and 500 respectively. d = D ( a + 1 ) 24 d = 500 ( 4 + 1 ) 24 After the known variables are substituted, solving the equation happens next as shown below; d = 500 ( 5 ) 24 d = 2500 24 = 104.16667 …. Thus the dosage of the 4 year old child is supposed to be 104 mg. Next we are to calculate the age of the child using the dosage of medicine

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
