RLO: Calculating Medicines for Children

Step 3: Calculating how much medicine Claire requires

The final simplified equation can be easily calculated.

3 times 5 equals 15 over 2.

15 divided by 2 equals 7 with 1 remaining. By extending beyond the decimal point and using a nought, 2 divides into 10 5 times.

Therefore Claire needs 7.5mls of Paracetamol.
