Using Cowling’s Rule for child sized doses of medication I will solvetwo problems. Cowling’s Rule is a formulathat converts an adult size dose into a smaller dose for a child using their age to determine the amount. This literal equation has multiple variables a, b, and c. They area = child’s ageThe formulaisd = D(a+1)b = adult dosage24c = child’s dosage The first problem I will solveis for the child’s dosage amount of Tamiflu. I was given the adult dosage of 75mg and the child’s age of 11. My formulawill read as follows with the substitutionsgiven.d = 75(11+1)75 and 11 were substitutedin for the variables D and a.24d = 75(12)I solvedthe parenthesis first.24d = 900I solvedthe multiplication next.24d = 37.5The final step in the order of operation was the division.
