    proportion

    Bicycling 12 mi/h = 410 cal. an hour

    So at what rate would a 120-pound person burn calorie while bicycling at 12 mi/h?

    410 calories. It depends on the speed not the weight (in this example). Thus that 120 pound is probably said to trick you and maketh thou thinketh that it is involved in the solution.
