**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 3:09pmWith the limited information you give, we have to make some unsure assumptions.

w = weight in pounds

h = height in inches

w = k * h^3 (h cubed)

Dividing both sides by h^3, gives you

k = w/(h^3)

Insert you numerical values. However, you need to know the adult values to make a comparison.

I hope this helps. If not, repost your question in clearer terms and with adequate data. Thanks for asking.
