Although acquired exercise can change one's height, genetic factors are also one of the important factors that affect height. Therefore, the height of a parent can have a very large effect on the height of a child. People often use the height of a parent to predict the height of a child. Here are some calculation formulas for predicting height. Let's take a look together!
Height calculation formula 1. Parental genetic height calculation formula The heritability of height is 0.75, which means that 75% of adult height depends on heredity, and only 25% depends on environmental factors. Generally speaking, the higher the parents, the higher the children. Shorter parents and shorter children. According to this, the child's adult height can be calculated by the following formula: male height = (father height + mother height) × 1.08 ÷ 2 (cm) female height = (father height × 0.923 + mother height) ÷ 2 (cm) 2, normal feet Formula for calculating the height of a newborn child male height = length at birth (cm) ÷ 0.2949 female height = length at birth (cm) ÷ 0.31093, height calculation formula at 3 years old male height = height at 3 years old × 0.545 + average parent height × 0.544 +37.69 (cm) female height = height at age 3 × 0.545 + average height of parents × 0.544 + 25.63 (cm)
Because there are many factors that affect height, no matter which method is used for prediction, the prediction formula cannot take all factors into account, and after a certain period of time, many factors such as nutrition, disease, and environment of the predicted object also change. unpredictable. Therefore, although we are sure that these prediction methods are scientifically based, the trends reflected in the prediction results will not be wrong. However, errors in height prediction are always inevitable. If you want to know your genetic height, leave the height of your parents and your age. Let me tell you!
