# Question: NURSINGDetermine the IV flow rate for the patient described at the beginning of the lesson by finding the value of $\frac{1500×15}{12×60}$

IV flow rate of the patient is $31.25$

See the step by step solution

## Step 1 - Order for simplification

To evaluate any expression involving more than one operation, follow the below order of operations:

• First evaluate expressions inside grouping symbols like parentheses ( ) or brackets [ ].
• Evaluate the exponents.
• Perform Multiplication and division from left to right.
• Perform addition and subtraction from left to right.

## Step 2 - Simplify numerator and denominator

To evaluate the value of the given expression, first simplify the expression of numerator and denominator as shown below

$\frac{1500×15}{12×60}=\frac{22500}{720}$

## Step 3 - Divide 22500 by 720

Now, to simplify further divide the numbers to get

$\frac{22500}{720}=31.25$

Thus, IV flow rate of the patient is $31.25$
