# Height Growth Decreases with Age

### 2 Year Old Grows faster than 14 Year Old

## Recent Studies show the Younger you are the faster your Height increases

The original hypothesis was that A*ge will not decrease your rate of growth.* At the beginning of the data collection Max was 80 cm tall and Bob 100 cm tall. However the data showed that Max was growing steadily at 6 cm a month, whereas Bob was only growing 4 cm a month.

In conclusion the original hypothesis was wrong, the study showed that your height increase rate is affected by your age; A*ge will decrease rate of growth*. In summary, both Max and Bob were the same height after 10 months.

## Graph (shown above)

As it is shown the data was only observed for 15 months, as your rate of growth depends on your age. After 15 months both Max and Bob will be older, and as it was proven the older you are the less your growth rate is, meaning that after 15 months both Max and Bob will grow at different growth rates; likely at less rates than they were before.

## Height Depends on Age

n represents the number of months

h represents the height (cm)

Equation: 5n+150

*Equation is accurate for only 15 months from point of observation, as age increases the rate of growth will change

## Height Depends on Age

n represents the number of months

h represents the height (cm)

Equation: h=6n+80

*Equation is accurate for only 15 months from point of observation, as age increases the rate of growth will change

## Summary

In the data observed we can see the younger child, Max growing faster than the older one Bob. In the graph it is evident as the line is steeper, while in the equation the value of m is larger showing as the months increase so does the height and more than Bob. From this we can find that both will be 140 cm from 10 months of the observation.
