### How tall will i be?

I am 15. My mom is 5' 10" dad is 6' 2". How tall will i be? I weigh 200 pounds.
Statistically speaking, if both your parents are taller than average, you will be closer to average height than either one of your parents. Although this sounds counter-intuitive, it is the statistically correct answer. Since your mother is quite above-average, and your father is slightly above average, it would be a good bet that you will be slightly shorter than your dad.

On the other hand, statistics don't always make the best prediction, and a pretty accurate way of predicting is to ask your parents how tall you were at 2 years old. In general, people will end up almost exactly twice as tall as when they were 2 years old. Pediatricians tend to record this type of information, so your parents may very well still have this written down if they have your medical records.

Finally, if you are REALLY interested in figuring your final height, your doctor may be willing to do an x-ray (usually the arm or leg) to look at your joints. Your joints are physically one of the last parts of your body to grow during your growth phase, and the x-ray can tell him how much more you will grow.

Good luck!
Insufficient data
one never knows, my dad's side of the family was tall, %26 mom's side was shorter, i ended up 5/7 %26 my sister was 6 foot, who knew?
You should end up being slightly taller than your dad as subsequent generations are always taller. It helps that ur mom is also tall so the genetic pool is there to your advantage. Considering your weight 6 ft plus should be ideal.
The parental genes have tall height, so you will be taller than your dad, may be 6' 4" or plus. But your weight at this age %26 height seems a bit more, so better be careful.
Tall is good but you should be tall inside your heart with your high thinking, vision and deeds ... not just your height
Probably like 6'0". But my dad is 5'11" and my mom is 5'5"...but I turned out to be 5'0".
Does not compute but,a rough guess I should say that all things being equal you will be five foot ten inches as the crow flies. and not a minute more.
put the information in here and you will get a pretty good estimate. It is a height prediction calculator:
