Given: 250mg/5ml
Needs: 100mg/(x)

So, first you'll solve the quantity needed per day and then multiply by the number for days it asks for.

Therefor;

250mg/5ml= 100mg/(x)
Milligrams will cancel out and you'll end
up with 2ml per day.
Now, multiply 2ml with four times a day for ten days:
2mlx 4 (times a day) x 10days = 80ml
So, the final answer is 80ml.
