for number 44. We wanna know what days, what dose? In rad bells, heavy ions would have the same biological damage as 100 red dose of X rays. So if we're gonna can compare biological damage, we don't want or does and rads we want it in rim and your dose in ram times of the r B e the relative biological effectiveness Kiss you the dose and ram. So if we would just take these and rad times that and that's on the table 29.3 in the book. So I want to know I'm just news x for this, So I'm gonna how many rads and I look upon the table? The RGB for I aunt for the ions is 20. We'll be equal to 100 red and I need multiplied by or B for X rays, which is just one so we can tell him. Just divide this by 20 and I get that X, which I'm just using X from a variable here is gonna be five. I would need five reds
