A model for the surface area of a human body is given by the functionS = f(w, h) = 0.1091w0.425h0.725where w is the weight (in pounds), h is the height (in inches), and S is measured in square feet.(a) Find f(160,70) and interpret it.(b) What is your own surface area?

(a)

To determine

To Find: The value of f(160,70) and interpret it.

Explanation

It is given that the surface area of a human bodyfunction  is s=f(w,h)=0.1091w0.425h0.725 , where w denotes the person weight (in pounds), h denotes the person height (in inches).

Here, w=160 and h=60 .

Substitute w=160 and h=60 in surface area of human body function,

f(160,70)=0.1091(160)0

(b)

To determine

To find: The surface area of your own.
