3. Linus Pauling (recipient of 2 Nobel Prizes, one for Chemistry and another for Peace) wrote a book, "Vitamin C and the Common Cold", which proposed that large doses of vitamin C can cure the common cold. One commercial over-the-counter production consists of 500.0 mg tablets that are 20.0 % by mass Vitamin C. How many of these tablets are need for a 1.00 g dose of vitamin C? Each 500.0 mg tablet costs 2 cents. If you can take a 1000.0 mg table of pure vitamin C for 9 cents a tablet, which would be more cost effective?
