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.)
