$2.5 \times 60 m g = 150 m g$

#### Explanation:

Your body needs $60 m g$ of vitamin c daily so that amount is 100% of your daily requirement.

$H a l f$ of the daily requirement would be 50% of the $60 m g$

If you were to double the daily amount required you would have $t w i c e$ as much or 200% of what you need.

So if you add up the amount of vitamin c in the capsule you would have:

50% of 60mg $= \frac{1}{2}$ (or half of) $60 m g$$= 30 m g$ PLUS
200%# of 60mg $= 2$ (or twice) $60 m g = 120 m g$

For a total of $30 m g + 120 m g = 150 m g$

And this is the same as $t w o$ and a $h a l f$ times the daily amount, or:

$2.5 \times 60 m g = 150 m g$

Note that the excess vitamin c will simply be flushed out of your body, so you may be able to find a less expensive dose in another capsule.
