There is a formula that estimates how much your puppy will weigh when it reaches adulthood. The method we present applies to medium-sized breeds. First find your puppy's weight w at an age of a weeks, where a is 16 weeks or less. Then the predicted adult weight 

W = W(aw),
 in pounds, is given by the formula
W = 52
w
a
.
In this exercise we consider puppies that weigh 
w = 4
 pounds at age a.
(a) Write a formula for W as a function of the age a
W =

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

It is given that w= 4  (when age a<16)

Simply plug it in the formula W=52^w/a:    W = 52^4/a
