BSA math

by Gabriela
(Oroville, CA)

Rx: Platinol IV 20mg/m2/day for 5 days. If the patient's BSA is 1.25m2, how much of the drug must be drawn up for one dose if the concentration of the Platinol vial is 50mg/mL?

The answer is 30.4 mL, but I have no idea how they got their answer. Please show work as much as you can - don't just assume I'll know where and how you got a number. Thank you!
