An athlete's target heart rate, in beats per minute, is 80% of the theoretical maximum heart rate. The maximum heart rate is found by subtracting the athlete's age, in years, from 200. To the nearest whole number, what is the target heart rate of an athlete who is 26 years old?

Theoretical max = 200 - 26 =   174 BPM

    Target = 80% * 174 =  .8 * 174 ≈ 139  BPM
