1. Yes exactly! Also your mailbox is full...need to empty some messages.
2. 5/1 * 1/2 = 5/2 * 4/1 = 20/2 =10/1 =10mg

I've got some spare time today PM if you need some help.
3. thanks so much . you know i know it's easy questions but everyone needs help. im just getting back in with the school thing.. thank you so much...
4. you guys are wonderful if you need. help with anythign as well let me know... dont be embarrassed as i am not i know its an easy question but its ok
5. No worries. Sometimes math anxiety can obscure an easy answer. I'd much rather help you and make sure you get the answers right when you have to medicate a patient than make you feel bad for not knowing the answer.
6. take half of 5 x .5 =2.5 x 4=10
7. right i know sir but this is my strategy as to what i did. i just multiplied 1/2 times 4.. right then that was 2,, so 2 by 5 equals ten .. thats how i did it that way...its so backwards to me it sucks
8. The key is to always set up the question correctly even if it's simple at least in the beginning that way if you have a more complex question later you can be consistent.
9. right to thepointeLVN so how should i read it so i know to set it up correctly?
