What pressure does a person standing on the ground exert?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

This has something to do with fluids, but I'm not sure what!

I think I should model the person as a cylinder and find the pressure on the person, then find what the pressure is on the ground?

I really have no idea, that was just a guess. I don't know how to find the pressure on the person either...

Can anyone please get me started?
