Body fat percentage can be found using the following formula.
100 x Amount of body fat/total body weight = % body fat which would be
100 x X/200=25%
They ask to find the amount of body fat.
I came up with this formula
25/100 x 200 = X
So X would be 50 lbs for the amount of body fat
then they ask how much weight he would lose if he was down to 18% body fat
18/100 x 200 = X
so that would be 36 lbs
Am i completely off? or do i have this correct?
