The heights of six students Aaron, Betty, Carrie, Dan, Evelyn and Frank are 58 inches, 60 inches, 63 inches, 68 inches, and 69 inches. Carrie is 4 inches shorter than Aaron. The girls (Betty, Carrie, and Evelyn) are the three shortest students. Dani is one inch shorter than Frank. Betty is the shortest student. What is the sum of Frank’s height and Evelyn’s height in inches?

What is the sum of Frank’s height and Evelyn’s height in inches?

Let's see if  we  can unravel this

Betty must be  58  = the shortest

Dan must  be  68

Frank  must  be  69      (Note that  Dan is 1 inch shorter  than Frank)

Aaron must  be 64

Carrie  must  be  60

Evelyn  must   be  63

So....the heights  must  be

Betty      Carrie      Evelyn      Aaron      Dan        Frank

58           60             63            64           68           69

Evelyn +  Frank =    63   +  69   =    132  (inches)   Mar 16, 2021
