The formula to approximate the hieght (h) of a male, in inches, is shown below, where t is the length of the tibia bone, in inches.
Paul's height is 69.4 inches. What is the approximate length, in inches, of paul's tibia bone?
69.4 = 2.4t + 32.2
Solve for t.
In this step, you need to subtract 32.2 from each side of the equation.
You still haven't found the length of the tibia bone.
is it 37.2
Good heavens! Paul's tibia is over 3 feet long! He must be a giant, yet he's less than 6 feet tall.
What did you miss in this problem?
