In brief: Height calculations

Step 1: add parents' height in inches.
Step 2: if child is male, add 5 inches to total from step 1. If child is female, subtract 5 inches from total from step 1. Step 3: divide answer from step 2 by 2. This is the predicted adult height of child, give or take 2 inches above or below.
