Hello everyone!

Im practing nursing math from here and there recently and I dont understand this answer.

If anyone who knows better than me, please, it would be very thankful to hear the answer from you!

Nipride at 3mcg/kg/min. Patients bwt. 110ib. Bag of Nipride 5DW 50mg/250ml. Gtt factor 60. How fast?

So the way I did was...

3 * 60 * 50 *60

---------------

200ml

but they said its

3 *50 *60

------------

200ml

so they dont multiply 60 which is gff factor.

I dont really get it.would

Is there something that im missing here?

Please please let me know!

Thank you ;)
