Puzzle of the Week

Week Beginning 9/1/17

Baby is nearly one year old now. We’ve worked out how to weigh her but nurse and I still have trouble measuring her height. She just will not stand up straight against our measuring chart. In fact she can’t stand up at all yet! So we measure her upside down.

When Baby was born, nurse held Baby’s feet, keeping them level with the 140cm mark, while I read off the mark level with the top of Baby’s head: 97cm. This year it was my turn to hold the feet. Being taller than nurse, I held them against the 150cm mark, while the nurse crawled on the floor to read the mark level with the top of Baby’s head: 84cm.

How many centimetres has Baby grown in her first year?

ANSWER: Last year, Baby was 140cm−97cm=43cm tall. This year, Baby is 150cm−84cm=66cm tall. So Baby has grown 66cm−43cm=23cm in her first year.
