### Geometric Prompting

The unit test is on Wednesday and the deadline is getting close to get your blogging done. In an effort to make your lives easier ;-) by giving you things to blog about consider this problem:

A student strained her knee in an intramural volleyball game, and her doctor prescribed an anti-inflammatory drug to reduce the swelling. She is to take two 220-milligram tablets every 8 hours for 10 days. Her kidneys eliminate 60% of this drug from her body every 8 hours.

__Blogging Prompt__- How much of the drug will remain in her body after 10 days, just after she takes her last dose of medicine? If she continued to take the drug for a year, how much of it would be in her system just after she took her last dose?
- If the initial dose is halved, what will happen to the stabilization level of the medicine in the body?
- If the recurring dose is halved, what will happen to the stabilization level of the medicine?
- If the elimination rate is halved, what will happen to the stabilization level of the medicine?

A successful response to this blogging prompt will **answer #1 above and at least one of #2 - #4**. It will **also show all work** done to get the answers. If you want to check your work you can use this interactive applet. Instructions on how to use the interactive applet are here.

*Have Fun and Happy Blogging!!*
