According to Kleiber's Law, the metabolic rate P (in kilocalories per day) and body mass m (in kilograms) of an animal are related by a three-quarter power law given below. Estimate the increase in metabolic rate when body mass increases from 65 to 66 kg. (Round your answer to one decimal place.)
P = 73.3m3/4

    (66/65)^(3/4) = 1.0115
    The metabolic rate increases by 1.15%
    Call it 1.2% after rounding.
