Work Step by Step

Given formula: $B=\sqrt\frac{hw}{3131}$, where $B$ is an individual’s body surface area in square meters, $h$ is the individual’s height in inches, and $w$ is the individual’s weight in pounds. Substitute values from the question into the formula. $B = \sqrt \frac{66\times135}{3131}$ $B = \sqrt\frac{8910}{3131}$ $B\approx1.69$ The individual's body surface area is approximately $1.69$ square meters.
