Q:

Last week, your patient's doctor indicated that you should mix 110 milligrams of Medication A with 154 milligrams of Medication B. However this week, the doctor said to only use 126 milligrams of Medication B. How many milligrams of Medication A should be mixed this week?

Accepted Solution

110/154 = x/126154x/13860x = 13860 /154 = 90 90 milligrams of medicine A
