Can someone set these word problems up so that I can solve for the answer. 3. The body index, I, can be used to determine an individual’s risk for heart disease. An index less than 25 indicated a low risk. The body mass index is given by the formula, or model, I=700W/H2, where W=weight, in pounds, and H= height, in inches. Jerome is 78 inches tall. What weights will keep his body mass index mass index between 22 and 30? Jerome’s body mass index will fall between 22 and 30 for the set of all weights such that ___ < W<___.

    Find the weight values for an index of 22 and 30. That's all the question asks for

    What weights will keep his body mass index mass index between 22 and 30? So, solve for the weight using 22 and 30 index mass: 22 = 700W/[(78)(2)] solving for W: W = [ (22)*(78)*(2) ] / (700) and 30 = 700W/[(78)(2)] solving for W: W = [ (30)*(78)*(2) ] / (700) then you have W of 22 and W of 30 W of 22 < X < W of 30
