Solution: Lipitor, a pharmaceutical drug that has been shown to lower “bad” cholesterol while raising “good” cholesterol levels in patients taking the drug, had over $11 billion in sales in 2006. Assuming one 2.5-g pill contains 4.0% of the active ingredient by mass, what mass in kg of active ingredient is present in one bottle of 100 pills?
