    arm span has no absolute correlation to height. You could be really tall with small arms or maybe really small with long arms. all people who are 5 foot 7 inches, for example, do not have the same exact length arms

    well as i've heard, the arms span of a person is usually equal to his/ her total height. and yup its a fact !

    Absolutely not. to what degree of accuraccy. "usually equal" does not mean its a fact. it might be approximate. but it certainly isnt absolute

    well sir you do doubt this fact, you can google it, actually the total arm span of a person is about 3 inches more than that of a person's height, so the answer would be D

    http://leonardodavinci.stanford.edu/submissions/clabaugh/images/vm/leonardo.jpg you can see there he is trying to show that the armspan and body size make approximate perpendicular radii to the same circle

    no, it is on algebra. for example, i am 5 foot 3 inches. my hight in inches is 63 my arm span is 69 inches. i only know my armspan because i meaured myself. but i cannot measure someone i made up

    make them up based on your proportions. so your height is 63 and armspan is 69. \[\frac{69}{63} = 1.095\] right? so generaly \[\frac{armspan}{height} = 1.095\] solve this for armspan (the thing your trying to find) \[armspan = height \times 1.095\] so times the height in inches by 1.095 and you will get the armspan you would have if you were that height. for example i'm 75 inches so my armspan is supposedly\[1.095 \times 75 = 82.142 \] so my armspan is 82.142 (if you were me)
