10. The body mass index, I, can be used to determine an individual's risk for heart disease. An index less than 25 indicates a low risk. The body mass index is given by the formula, or model, I=700W/H2, where W=weight, in pounds, and H = height, in inches. Francis weighs 187 pounds and stands 75 inches tall. What is his approximate body mass index? Find an inequality describing all weighs W that Francis can have and be in the low-risk category.
Francis' approximate body mass index is __ (round to the nearest whole number)
Find an inequality describing all weighs W that Francis can have and be in the low-risk category.
{ W|W< (approximately) __ lb} (round down to the nearest whole pound)
