Q:
# The standard guidelines for fluid intake recommend that a 10dash20-kg child should have 1000 mL of fluid plus 50 mL for each full kilogram of body weight over 10 kg per day. How many 8-ounce glasses of fluid should a 43-pound child have each day? The 43-pound child should drink about nothing 8-ounce glasses of fluid each day.

Accepted Solution

A:

Given that the standard guidelines for fluid intake recommend that a 10 - 20 kg child should have 1000 mL of fluid plus 50 mL for each full kilogram of body weight over 10 kg per day.

1 ounce contains 29.57 mL of fluid, thus an 8-ounce glass contains 8(29.57) = 236.56 mL of fluid.

1 pound is equivalent to 0.45 kg, thus, 43 pound is equivalent to 43(0.45) = 19.35 kg

Thus, the standard guidelines for fluid intake recommend for a 43 pounds (19.35 kg) child is given by 1000 + 9(50) = 1000 + 450 = 1450 mL of fluid per day.

Therefore, the number of 8-ounce glasses a 43 pound child should have is given by:

[tex] \frac{1450}{236.56} =6.13\approx6\ glasses[/tex]
