The formula below gives the surface area S of a human body (in square meters) in terms of its weight W (in kilograms) and its height H (in centimeters).
S = 0.007184(W^0.425)(H^0.725)
Compute SW and SH when W = 100 kg and
H = 180 cm.
SW = ?
SH = ?
NOTE: I took the derivative of 0.007184 and multiply it by the derivative (100^.425)(180^.725)
but it still says it is wrong. please help me out.
