## Math Problem

I need a formula to answer a question such as this:

If a 7 feet 300 lb man can have 24 beers before becoming intoxicated, how many beers can a 5 feet 100 lb man consume before becoming intoxicated.

Or direct me to a site where I might have this answered.

Thanks in advance.

A 5 foot 100 lb man can drink 24 beers and not become intoxicated also at 1 beer a day.

If a 7 feet 300lb Zubian can have 24 Knarg cakes before he pukes, how many Knarg cakes can a 5 feet 100 lb Zubian eat before it pukes.

...is what I should've said.

What other variables or constants might I need?

It's reasonable assume that blood volume scale with overall body volume, so you could do your intoxication based on the cube of height ratios (so the five-footer could eat 24/2.74 = 8.76). You could also do it purely by mass, if you want your users to be able to figure out the math easily.

Seriously though, that's precisely what I was looking for. Thank you for your time.

A good start to finding a proper answer to your question would be

scholar.google.com, and search for peer-reviewed papers on "alcohol intoxication".
