If a patient is prescribed 25 ml of amoxicillin 5 times a day, for a 10-week course, but only takes 8.5 weeks of it. How many doses does he have left over?

Correct!

Wrong

Wrong

Wrong

The correct answer is **52.5 doses**.

**Method 1**: To begin with we need to work out the numbers of days of the course. So 10 weeks with 7 days per week gives us 70 days.

The proportion used was over an 8.5 week period. Knowing that there are 7 days in a week, we multiply the number of days per week by the number of weeks, meaning 8.5 x 7 = 59.5 days.

Given that we want to know how many doses our patient has left, we must subtract the number of days used from the total number of days.

70-59.5 = 10.5 days

Now that we know the number of days left over and we know the number of doses per day, we simply take the number of doses and multiply them by the number of days: 5x10.5 = 52.5 dosages.

**Method 2**: Knowing that the total number of days equates to 70 days (10x7), we multiply the number of days by the dosage per day. This gives us 70x5 = 350 doses.

Taking the number of days that were actually used, we have 59.5 (8.5x7) and multiplying them by the number of doses per day, we get 297.5 dosages. (59.5x5).

Then for the final answer, we subtract the total number of doses, from the number that was used, and we get 52.5 dosages left over, (350-297.5).
