How tall will YOUR child be? The simple formula that can predict how big your kid will grow
Would you like to know if your child is set to stand head and shoulders above the rest? Or if they're likely to stay diminutive into adulthood?
There is an easy (although fallible) mathematical equation that can help you predict how tall your child will be.
The formula, which has been used since the 1970s and was revealed in the New York Times, predicts that 'most (but not all) children will reach a height somewhere within a fairly small range that can be estimated by the average combined heights of their parents.'
How does it work?
Add the heights of both parents plus 5in (13cm) and divide by two.
比如父亲1米76,母亲1米65,那儿子的身高就是（1.76 + 1.65 + 0.13）/ 2 = 1.77,即1米77.
