instructs you to give a 3 month old infant 50mg/kg of Rocephin M the baby weight was 11 pounds. Each kilogram=2.2 pounds. how many MG would the baby receive
- momtojullexLv 61 decade agoFavorite Answer
1 kg/ 2.2lbs = x kg/11 lbs
11lbs = 5kg
5kg x 50mg/kg= 250 mg for 5kg (11lbs)

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

That's question of dosage calculus!

11 pounds = 24.2 kg
