# Ordered (diazepam) 0.01 g. You have 5 mg tablets. How many tablets do you give?

You have 2 tablets.

#### Explanation:

$5$ $m g$ $=$ $5 \times {10}^{-} 3 g$.

$2 \times 5 \times {10}^{-} 3 g = 0.010 \cdot g$.

I think you need to order some more tablets, because typically with these medicines you tend to avoid stopping and starting the dose.
