# 83 Threshold weight. The threshold weight for an individual is the weight beyond

which the risk of death increases significantly. Middle-aged males the function W (h) =

0.000534h/3 expresses the threshold weight in pounds as a function of the height h in

inches. Find W (70). Find the threshold weight for a 6`2" middle aged male.

Write a formula that describes the function for each of the following.

# 8 C=$20,000+$40*S

# 10 R=0.05*A

# 83 It seems that the function is W (h) = 0.000534^h/3
W(70)=0.000534^70/3=183.16
6'2"=6*12+2=74
W(74)=0.000534^74/3=216.39
