Question #16107

The pharmacy dispenses simvastatin 10mg in quantities of 90 tablets. Packages of simvastatin are available in bottles of 60. If the pharmacy dispenses eight simvastatin 10 mg prescriptions daily, and there are no bottles of simvastatin on the shelf, how many bottles of simvastatin should you order?

Expert's answer

if we have 10 mg in 90 tablets, then in one bottle with 60 tables, we

have 10

mg 60/90

So, 20/3 mg in one bottle.

We need 8*10 mg simvastatin for

prescriptions, so 80(full)/(20/3)(one

bottle)=240/20=12 bottles

have 10

mg 60/90

So, 20/3 mg in one bottle.

We need 8*10 mg simvastatin for

prescriptions, so 80(full)/(20/3)(one

bottle)=240/20=12 bottles
