the body mass index is given by the formula, or model, I=700w/h(2), where w= weight and h = height in inches. Jerome is 76 inches tall. what weight will keep his body mass index between 25 and 33

Jeromes body mass index will fa;ll between 25 and 33 for the set of weights such that ?<w<?

h^2 = h squared online

I hope you are using the correct units (lbs and inches).

25 = 700w/(76^2)

33 = 700w/(76^2)

Solve for w in both cases.

To be more exact, the constant is 703 rather than 700, but 700 is easier to deal with.
