I need help I'm suppose to pick a bird of my choice convert the weight into pounds and then find the wingspan. I'm not sure what the steps of the process are. An average bluejay weights .154 pounds, using the exponent equation L = 2.43*W^0.3326

What I have so far is

L = 2.43*W^0.3326

L = 2.43(.154)^0.3326

on your calculator find a key that looks like x^{y} or y^{x}

enter the base (.154), press the above key, enter the exponent (.3326) and press the = sign,

you should get .5367467, multiply that by 2.43 to get

1.3043

I don't know where that equation comes from, nor what the units are, I just showed you how to do the mechanics.
