Using Cowling’s Rule we will first determine the dose of medication for a 6 year old child. In the second part we will use the same rule to determine the child’s age using known dosage rates. Cowling’s rule is a formula that is used to calculate a child’s dose of medication based on an adult dose and the child’s age. This formula uses multiple variables to achieve its results just as all formulas or literal equations do. The following two problems will use the variables: a = child’s age, d = child’s dose, D = adult dose The Cowlings Rule Formula is I will calculate the dose of Tamiflu for a 6year old child using an adult dose of 75mg Substitue 75mg for D and 6 for a Using order of operations remove parenthesis Using order of operations do the multiplication Use division to solve for the correct child's dose rounding to the nearest whole number The appropriate dose of Tamiflu for a 6 year old child is 22mg. Next we will show that you can find a child’s age using Cowlings Rule if you know the dose of
