Calculate Expected Height

  • 670px-Grow-Taller-Step-1-Version-4
  • Calculate your projected height. Working in inches or centimeters, you can try to predict your height based on the height of your parents.
    • Add up your mom and dad’s heights (in inches or cm).
    • Add 5 inches (13 cm) if you’re a boy; subtract 5 inches (13 cm) if you’re a girl.
    • Divide by 2.
    • The answer is your predicted height, give or take 4 inches. Note that this isn’t an absolute calculation, but it should be pretty close.
