Q:

Given the following prescription formula, what is the ratio strength (nearest whole number) of methylcellulose in the finished product? As a ratio is typically expressed as 1:some number, put ONLY the number in the space provided and NOT the 1: portion. DO NOT include any units. • Progesterone 3.8 g • Glycerin 7 mL • 2% methylcellulose solution 50 mL • Cherry syrup ad 90 mL Your Answer: Answer

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:147Step-by-step explanation:Given: Progesterone =  3.8 g Glycerin = 7 mL 2% methylcellulose solution 50 mL Cherry syrup ad = 90 mL Now, The total volume of the solution = 7 + 50 + 90 = 147 mLAlso,2% methylcellulose solution 50 mL is concluded as:the volume of  methylcellulose in the solution is 2% of the total volume of the solutionthus, volume of methylcellulose = 0.02 × 50 mL = 1 mLTherefore, Ratio strength of methylcellulose in the finished product =[tex]\frac{\textup{volume of methylcellulose}}{\textup{ total volume of the solution}}[/tex]or= [tex]\frac{\etxtup{1}}{\textup{ 147}}[/tex]Hence, the answer according to the question is 147
