Do not use a trailing zero.) 0.5 tablet(s) Correct Rationale: Ratio and Proportion</br>STEP 1: What is the unit of measurement the nuse should calculate? tablet <br/>STEP 2: What is the dose the nurse should administer? Dose to administer= Desired 125 mcg <br/>STEP 3: What is the dose available? Dose available = Have 0.25 <br/>STEP 4: Should the nurse convert the units of measurement? Yes (mcg does not equal mg) <br/>1 mg/1000 mcg = x mg/125 mcg</br>X = 0.125 mg</br>STEP 5: What is the quantity of the dose available? 1 tablet <br/>STEP 6: Set up an equation and solve for X. <br/>Have/Quantity = Desired/X <br/>0.25 mg/1 tablet = 0.125 mg/X tablet <br/>X = 0.5 <br/>STEP 7: Round if necessary. <br/>STEP 8: Reassess to determine whether the amount to administer makes sense.
