Question from jasmine, a parent:

when she was 14 jessica was 5 feet, 4inches tall . at 18 she is now 6 feet, 2inches tall .how fast did jessica grow during this time

How many inches taller is this? (it's 12 inches to a foot, if you grew up in a metric country!)

How many years is this?

How many inches per year?

Good Hunting!
