Question

A doctor calculates a particular dose of medicine is appropriate for an individual whose BSA is less than 1.8. If the mass of an individual is 75 Kg, how many cm can he/she be for the dose to be appropriate?

Hint:

Substitute in the equation and solve

The correct answer is: 155.52


    Complete step by step solution:
    Here, BSA < 1.8 and M = 75kg
    Given that the formula for BSA = square root of fraction numerator H cross times M over denominator 3600 end fraction end root

    On squaring both the sides, we get fraction numerator H cross times 75 over denominator 3600 end fraction less than 3.24
