**Aria**, Tuesday, August 2, 2011 at 2:38amStart with the given equation of

I=700w/h^2

I=700w/72^2 Plug in Jerome's height

I=700w/5184

Since we want the BMI to be between 24 and 33, we have to construct an inequality.

24=<700/5184=<33

Multiply all sides by 5184

5184*24=<700w*5184/5184=<33*5184

Once you delete unnecessary duplications you have the inequeality of

124416/700=<700w=<171072/700

Now all you have to do is divide by 700 on both sides as above and you will have your answer. Just remember to write it as an inequality.

Double check the math.
