  • Question 1: A pharmacy technician is opening a box of instruments in various sizes. Her task is to arrange a set of instruments on the shelf in order, from smallest to largest on the basis of the instruments’ diameters. The diameters are as follows:

      1/4, 1/16, 1/2,7/16, 3/16, 5/16


How should the technician arrange the instruments?

  • Questions 2 and 3: A pharmacy technician receives a prescription for 125mcg of a medication. The pharmacy has 0.25mg scored tablets on hand. The technician calculates that the patient should take two tablets per dose. The drug label indicates that 0.25mg is equivalent to 250mcg.

    Is the pharmacy technician performing the calculation correctly?

    If not, how many tablets should the patient take?
  • Question 4: A physician orders a dosage of 85mg. The drug on hand is labeled “0.1g in 1.5mL.”

    How many mL should the pharmacy technician give the patient?
  • Question 5: A physician orders a dosage of 1500mcg. The solution available is 0.5mg per mL.

    How many mL should the pharmacy technician give the patient?
  • Question 6: A medication is labeled 900mg per 6mL.

    How much is needed for a 0.3g dose?
  • Question 7: A medication is available in 1000mcg per mL.

    How much is needed for a 0.8mg dose?
  • Question 8: An order for Maalox® reads like this: Take 5mL po 1hr a.c., 1hr p.c., and h.s.

    How much does the patient take in one day?
  • Question 9: A 4-year-old child has been on an oral antibiotic for 7 days. She still has the same symptoms as when she started taking the antibiotic. Her mother calls the pharmacy and speaks to a pharmacy technician. She tells him that though the antibiotic is supposed to continue for another 7 days, it’s still almost three-quarters full. The pharmacy technician asks the mother how she’s administering the medication. She explains that she’s administering one spoonful three times per day. The technician asks what type of spoon she’s using, because the prescription was for “one teaspoonful three times per day.” The mother says the child will only allow her to use a plastic spoon that was inside the packaging of her favorite doll.

    What mistake has occurred in dosing?
  • Question 10: Each tablet in a bottle of 30 costs $4.60. The pharmacy’s cost, which includes supplies, shipping, pharmacist consult, and personnel time, is $1.40 per pill.

    If a 12% profit is desired, how much would the entire bottle cost?
