to height h (in inches) is approximately dW/dh=0.0015h^2 pounds per inch. Suppose that the average

person that is 60 inches tall weighs 108 pounds. Find the weight of an average person that is 5 feet

10 inches tall.

W = constant + .0005 h^3

108 = c + .0005(60)^3

108 = c + 108

c = 0

so

W = .0005 h^3

W(70) = .0005 (70)^3

= 171.5
