Question

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the number of calories per day a person needs to maintain life. A person's basal metabolic rate B(w) in calories per day can be estimated with the function $$B ( w ) = 70 w ^ { \frac { 3 } { 4 } }$$ , where w is the person's weight in kilograms. Estimate the BMR for a person who weighs $$73$$ kilograms. (Note: $$73$$ kilograms is approximately $$161$$ pounds.)
