Formulas for Calculating Medication Dosage. Basic Formula D -- x Q = X A. Where D (desired) is the dosage the physician ordered, A (available) is the dosage strength as stated on the medication label, and Q (quantity) is the volume in which the dosage strength is available (e.g. tablets, capsules, milliliters).How do you calculate medication dose?
If the drug is one where dosage is calculated by weight, multiply the patient's weight by the dosage listed in the drug guide. For example, for a child weighing 10 kg taking a drug with a recommended dosage of 20 mg/kg/day, the daily dosage would be 10 kg x 20 mg/kg/day = 200 mg/day.How do you calculate mg?
The formula for determining your MPG is this: MPG = (Mileage B - Mileage A)÷Gallons. Subtract Mileage A from Mileage B. This will give you the number of miles you drove since your last fill-up. Divide your answer by the number of gallons (Gallons B) it took to fill up your tank. This will give you your car's MPG.
