lb equals 126 kg

    Here weight of patient is 70 kg or 154 lb and
    Daily dose of drug is 0.5 mg/kg

    Daily dose
    = `70 \quad kg × 0.5 \quad (mg)/(kg) = 35 \quad mg `

    weight of the capsule is 35 mg

    patient needs
    = `(35)/(35)`
    = 1 capsules/day

    for 18 weeks of therapy patient needs
    ` (1 \quad c a p s u l e s )/(day)× (7\quad day)/(week) × 18 \quad weeks `
    = 126 capsules Ans.
