No, I'm not being funny; I am this challenged in math!
My husband has a prescription for a certain medication which he has to take 3 times a day. The prescription is filled in quantities of 100 pills at a time.
He is to take a whole pill twice a day, and a half pill once a day. I have never been able to come out close to even.
How many pills do I have to chop in half to make it come out even, or nearly so? (So I can get it all done at once, instead of having to chop pills daily or weekly.)
If you chop 20 pills in half you will have 40 half-pill pieces.
You will have 80 whole pills left-- enough for 40 days (two a day). I think that works.
