Which is his approximate body mass index? 21.81


(I didn't realized there was a SECOND PART to it). Find an inequality discribing all weights that Frances can have and be in the low risk category? round lb to the nearest whole number. Thank you.

    h = 73
    700w/h^2 < 25
    700w/73^2
    700w/5329 < 25
    Multiply both sides by 5329
    700w < 133,225
    w < 190.32
    w < 190
