    Answer:

    0.8853 mL

    Explanation:

    First we convert 13 lb to kg, keeping in mind that 1 lb = 0.454 kg:

    • 13 lb * \frac{0.454kg}{1lb} = 5.902 kg

    Then we calculate how many mg of acetaminophen should be given, using the recommended dose and infant mass:

    • 15 mg/kg * 5.902 kg = 88.53 mg

    Finally we calculate the required mL of suspension, using its concentration:

    • 88.53 mg ÷ (80 mg/0.80 mL) = 0.8853 mL
