Yes I'm new nursing student and I'm in dosage calculation class. I'm working through some pediatric math involving weight based problems in some text it shows to round KG to nearest tenth and others to nearest hundredth I'm curious which is correct? Also for some pediatric oral liquid medication in some text the final answer is rounded to nearest tenth of an ML and and other text rounded to nearest hundredth of an ML which is correct?

This too: You cannot measure oral meds to the 1/100th of an mL. An oral syringe is not calibrated thusly.
