lb equals 225.00 mg kg

Here Adult dose = 600 mg
Age = 8 year

Cowling's rule for child, based on age:

Child dose ` =(AGE \quad AT \quad NEXT \quad BIRTHDAY \quad )/(24) √ó ADULT \quad DOSE \quad (mg)`
`\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad = (8+1)/(24) √ó 600 \quad mg`
`\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad\quad = 225.00 \quad mg` Ans.
