medi calculation help here!

  1. 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

    but they said its

    3 *50 *60

    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

    Good day, RNJin

    I recommend - Helping Nursing Students Learn Dosage Calculations and in terms of learning dimensional analysis as it helps you have the right unit at the end given the right set up.

    Thank you.
