For a woman with a 40 inch hips, the maximum ideal waist size is 32 inches. What is the maximum ideal waist size for a woman with 35 inch hips?Answer by Earlsdon(6287)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First, you write the proportion equation, where W = waist size and H = hip size in inches. where k is the constant of proportionality. You need to find the value of k and this can be done using the given example of the woman whose hip size is 40 inches (H = 40) and whose waist size is 32 inches (W = 32). Substitute the values in the first equation and solve for k. Divide both sides by 40. Reduce the fraction. Now the final equation is: So, for a woman with 35-inch hips, the ideal waist size would be: inches.
