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.

h=2.4t+32.2

Paul's height is 69.4 inches. What is the approximate length, in inches, of paul's tibia bone?

  • algebra -

    69.4 = 2.4t + 32.2

    Solve for t.

  • algebra -

    2.4t=69.4+32.2

  • algebra -

    No.

    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.

  • algebra -

    is it 37.2

  • algebra -

    Good heavens! Paul's tibia is over 3 feet long! He must be a giant, yet he's less than 6 feet tall.
