Using Proportionality

How do figure out the average heights and weights for sheep and cows? Also. for Bald Eagles and Canada Geese.

Dairy Cow 5 to 6 feet tall at the shoulder/weight 500lbs
Bighorn Sheep Shoulder Height: 2.5 to 3.5" 280-300 weight

Canada Goose
length: M 25-45 inches/weight: M 3-13 lbs.

Bald Eagle
length 28–40 in
weight 5.5 and 15 lb

  • Algebra -

    You keep asking this, but it keeps being vague.

    If we assume that all animals are evenly distributed in the height/weight ranges, then just use the average of the low and hi values.

    For example,
    Bighorn Sheep range from 2.5 to 3.5 feet high. The average would be (2.5+3.5)/2 = 3' high. The weight ranges from 280-300 lbs. The average would be (280+300)/2 = 290 lbs.

    Do the same for the other animals. If there's more to the question (like how proportionality figures in), please clarify.
