    1 kg/ 2.2lbs = x kg/11 lbs

    11lbs = 5kg

    5kg x 50mg/kg= 250 mg for 5kg (11lbs)

    250mg.

    The answer is definately 250 mg. You would just multiply: 5 kg x50 mg =250 mg.

    That's question of dosage calculus!

    If the infant weighs 24.2 kg, how may it will receive?

    11 pounds = 24.2 kg
