Exercise 3 (Variables)

Calculate the skin surface of your body from height $h$ und weight $W$ using DuBois' formula:

\begin{displaymath}A = h^{0.725}(cm) \cdot W^{0.425}(kg) \cdot 71.84 \cdot 10^{-4} (m^2)\end{displaymath}

Use variables $h$ and $W$.

Solution:

>> h=182; W=71;     
>> A=h^0.725*W^0.425*71.84e-4
A = 1.9129
