KEY

 

1.                  a. 1/5

b. 1/4

c. 4/5

 

2.   a.         10%

b.                  33%

c.                   66%

d.                  75%

 

3.  

cc Sustacal =  200 cc  X 3 = 150 cc Sustacal
  1 4  

       200 150 = 50 cc water

 

  1. 240 cc Ensure + 80 cc water = 320 cc total
Desired strength =  240 (CV) = 0.75 or 3/4 strength
  320 (TV)  

  1. cc water = 180 cc X  3/4  water = 135 cc water

 

  1. 480 cc + 120 cc = 600 cc
    480 cc 600 cc = 80% or 4/5

   7.   TV X DS = CV     240 cc X 1/2 strength = 120cc CV

    240 (TV) - 120 (CV) = 120 cc water

8. 

cc water =  225 cc (TV) X 0.25 water = 56.25 or 56.3 cc water
       

 9.  

mL Sustacal =  30 mL   X 8 oz = 240 mL Sustacal
  1 oz 1  

    240 mL Sustacal  2/3 = 240 X 3/2 = 720/2 = 360 TV 240 = 120 cc water

10.   cc water = 30 mL/ 1 oz  X 4 oz. = 120 mL water

  40 cc Osmolite + 120 cc water = 160 cc TV

  40 cc Osmolite  160 cc TV =  1/4 strength

11.   cc water = 250 cc X 1/2 = 125 cc

12.   cc Jevity = 400 cc X 3/4 = 300 cc Jevity   

13.       TV = 100 cc 1/3 = 100 cc X 3/1 = 300 cc

14.      

mL/ day =  30 mL   X 8 oz   X 2400 cal = 2400 mL Ensure/ day
  1 oz 240 cal 1 day  

15.              TV = CV divided by DS

cc TV = 2400 mL = 2400 mL  X 4 = 9600 = 3200 TV
       3/4   3      3  

            3200 TV minus 2400 CV = 800 cc water

16.     

cc Ensure =  30 mL   X 8 oz     X 1500 cal = 1500 cc Ensure
  1 oz 240 cal    

             TV = 2000 cc

            CV divided by TV = DS

1500 cc  = 3/4 = 75%
2000 cc
