Question

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

Here is a rule of thumb
ing 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
(a) Explain why, accarding to this rule of thumb, among typical adult males the weight is a linear function of the height.
According to this rule of thumb, the rate of change is constantand thus the weight is a linear function of the height.
Identify the slope of this function.
