Is my thought process / answer right? ...

"Ordered : D5LRS IVat 40mL/hr. Available: D5LRS 500 mL; gravity device with mircodrip (60) administration set. How many hours (and minute if applicable) will the infusion last.

My work ... I did 40mL over 500mL = 12.5 (12hrs 30 minutes) total infusion time. Is that right? If not what am I doing wrong?

Yes, that's correct. And thank you for actually working the problem, rather than just posting the question and waiting for the answer.
