    Answer:

    8.25 cc fluid should be drawn into the syringe from the U40 vial.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The amount of a U40 vial insulin fluid is 10 cc.

    A vial marked U40 has 40 units of insulin per cubic centimeter of fluid.

    Suppose, if a patient needs 33 units of insulin, then x cc fluid should be drawn.

    So, according to the ratio of “cubic centimeter” to “the units of insulin”, the equation will be………

    \frac{x}{33}=\frac{10}{40}\\ \\40x=330\\ \\ x=\frac{330}{40}=8.25

    So, 8.25 cc fluid should be drawn into the syringe from the U40 vial.
