To find out how many ounces of medicine you take in a day, first, you need to determine how many times you take the medicine in a day, considering the dosage prescribed by your doctor.

Since you take 400 milligrams of medicine every 8 hours, and there are 24 hours in a day, you will take the medicine 3 times a day (24 hours / 8 hours per dose = 3 doses per day).

Next, calculate the total amount of medicine taken in a day: ( 400 \text{ milligrams/dose} \times 3 \text{ doses/day} = 1200 \text{ milligrams/day} )

Now, convert the total amount of medicine from milligrams to ounces. To do this, you need to know the conversion factor: 1 ounce is equal to approximately 28.35 grams, and 1 gram is equal to 1000 milligrams.

Using the conversion factors: ( 1200 \text{ milligrams/day} \times \frac{1 \text{ gram}}{1000 \text{ milligrams}} \times \frac{1 \text{ ounce}}{28.35 \text{ grams}} )

Calculate: ( \frac{1200}{1000} \times \frac{1}{28.35} \approx 0.0423 \text{ ounces/day} )
So, you take approximately 0.0423 ounces of medicine in a day.
