Asked Nov 6, 2018

Here is a rule of thumb relating weight to height among adult males : if a man is 1 inch taller than another, then we expect him to be heavier by 5 pounds.

-identify the slope of this function

(B) a related rule of thumb is that a typical man who is 70 inches tall weighs 170 pounds. On the basis of these two rules of thumb, use a formula to express the trend giving weight w as a linear function of height h. W(h)=_______________

(C) if a man weighs 163 pounds, how tall would you expect him to be? _________ inches

Step 1

Slope is defined by the change in y intercepts with respect to change in x intercepts. So here considereing the y intercepts as weight and x intercepts as height, the slope is given by:

Step 2

Answer: Therefore slope of the function is given by m=5

Step 3

We know that the general equation for a linear function is g...
