Need Assistance With Math Question!

  1. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.
    Here is the question.

    Pitocin is ordered at 40 units to me mixed in 100ml of D5W as a piggyback utilizing a volumetric pump.
    To be started at 6 milliunits/min.
    Increase by 2 milliunits/min until contractions are 2-3 minutes apart.
    Determine the concentration factor of the solution.
    Determine the Initial infusion rate in ml/hr.
    Determine the titration rate in ml/hr.

    Can someone break this solution down for me, thank you so much!!!

    First you need to determine the units/ml. That will be your concentration factor.
