First make sure you verify all the information with your pediatrician and always verify your calculation result

Second you should read my article and the links I included about dosage

Here is how I calculate the dosage for Tylenol 160mg/5ml

answer A  divided by 160mg  = answer B

answer B x 5ml = your dose in ml

Here is how I calculate the dosage Advil 100 mg/5 ml

The recommended dose per pound x your child’s weight in pound = answer A
