The function C(h)=(2h^2+5h)/(h^3+8) models the concentration of a medication in the bloodstream (as a percent) h hours after its injection into muscle tissue. How many hours after injection does a maximum concentration of the drug occur in the bloodstream? Round answer to nearest hundredth. Suppose you need to re-administer this injection at the point when the concentration is less than 0.5%. If the first injection was given at 8:00 am, what time should the next injection be given?
