Ideal Body Weight The ideal body weight W for men (in kilograms) as a function of height h(in inches) is given by the function W(h) = 50 + 2.3(h – 60) (a) What is the ideal weight of a 6foot male? (b) Express the height h as a function of weight W. (c) What is the height of a male who is at his ideal weight of 80 kilograms?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hi, a) In order to find the weight, we can substitute the corresponding height (6ft = 12*6 inches= 72 inches) into the equation. So from that we get: W = 50 + 2.3(72  60) = 77.6kg b) The question is basically asking us to rearrange the equation and solve for h: W(h) = 50 + 2.3(h  60) W(h)  50 = 2.3(h  60) \[\frac{ W(h)  50 }{ 2.3 }=h60\] \[h=\frac{ W(h)  50 }{ 2.3 }+60\] c) We can use the equation from b and substitute the ideal weight ( W(h) = 80kg) that would give us: \[h=\frac{ 80  50 }{ 2.3 }+60\] h = 73 inches = 6.1 ft Hopefully that makes sense!
