Answer:

#2.5 xx 60 mg = 150mg#

Explanation:

Your body needs #60 mg# of vitamin c daily so that amount is #100%# of your daily requirement.

#Half# of the daily requirement would be #50%# of the #60mg#

If you were to double the daily amount required you would have #twice# 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 #= 1/2# (or half of) #60mg##= 30mg# PLUS
#200%# of 60mg #= 2# (or twice) #60mg = 120mg#

For a total of #30mg + 120mg = 150mg#

And this is the same as #two# and a #half# times the daily amount, or:

#2.5 xx 60mg = 150mg#

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.
