Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

(a) $1~cc = 1~mL$ We can convert 15 cc to units of milliliters. $15~cc = \frac{15~cc}{1}\times \frac{1~mL}{1~cc} = 15~mL$ 15 milliliters of the drug should be administered. (b) $1~fl~oz = 30~mL$ We can convert 15 cc to units of fluid ounces. $15~cc = \frac{15~cc}{1}\times \frac{1~mL}{1~cc}\times \frac{1~fl~oz}{30~mL} = 0.5~fl~oz$ 0.5 fluid ounces of the drug should be administered.
