Formula :
For Men:
Resting metabolic rate = ( 10 x W ) + ( 6.25 x H ) - ( 5 x A ) + 5
For Women:
Resting metabolic rate = ( 10 x W ) + ( 6.25 x H ) - ( 5 x A ) - 161
Where,
W = Weight H = Height A = Age

weight = 60 kg Height = 182 cm Age =26

To Find,

Resting Metabolic Rate

Solution:

Resting Metabolic Rate = ( 10 x W ) + ( 6.25 x H ) - ( 5 x A ) + 5 = 10 x 60 + 6.25 x 182 - 5 x 26 + 5 = 1612.5
