(a) Express this relationship as a mathematical equation.
(b) If a person who was 5 feet, 10 inches tall weighed 235 pounds had a Body Mass Index of 33.7, what is the value of the constant of proportionality?
(c) Rewrite the mathematical equation found in part 40a to include the value of the constant found in part 40b and then find your Body Mass Index
