How many full vials of a drug needed to make sure there is enough drug for the first four hours?

I know that the drug is available as 1 mg/mL in 5 mL vials.

I know the drug is delivered at a rate of 3.6 mg/kg/hr.

Am I supposed to multiply 3.6 * 4= 14.4 because it’s asking about 4 hours?

If if so I don’t know how to set up the proportion so figure it how many vials will be used.
