He calculated the Body Mass Index (BMI) of a sample of girls from the population at the school. There were 365 girls at the schools. 1 Determine the range of the ages of the girls in the sample.

2. Use the formula: BMI =  weight(kg)/height(m^2) to calculate:
(a) P
(b) Q
(c) R

Use Table 1 above and the BMI age growth chart below to answer the questions below. 3 Determine Tsakane’s weight status.
4 Determine the number of 16-year-old girl(s) whose weight status lies between the 5th and 85th percentile.

1.    range = 19 – 14 = 5

2.    (a) BMI = (72 / 1.7^2)

P = 24,9

(b) BMI = (65 / 1,5^2)

Q = 28,9

(c) BMI = weight (kg) / height^2

27 = (69/2)

2 = 69/27 = 2,55555555

R = 1,60

3.    Overweight

4.    1

5.    Normal

6(a)    overweight

(b)    For normal weight, BMI = 26

BMI = weight (kg) / height^2

Weight = BMI x height^2 = 26 x 1.63^2 = 69.1 kg

Minimum weight loss = 71 - 69.1 = 1.9 kg
