A. To find the amount of doses the man requires:
275 pounds/30 pounds per dose=9.1667 doses
Knowing that, the man gets 9.1667 doses of 105 mg so:
9.1667*105=962.5 mg of medicine
B. If the man gets 700 mg every 8 hours, that means he get's 2,100 mg every 24 hour day. (Calculated by 3*700mg because there are three 8 hour portions of a 24 hour day)
Because we just determined that the man needs 962.5 mg of medicine a day, a 700 mg dose every hour is not the correct dosage because it is too high.
Hope this helps!
