It has been found that adult height can be accurately predicted by taking specific measurements of children and multiplying them by a scale factor obtained by analyzing large representative samples. Twelve-year old Jean reads that female height will be 73cm plus 1.9 times the length of the femur in centimeters. if Jean's femur measures 50 cm, how many centimeters tall can she expect to be as an adult?
(1.9 * 50) + 73 = ?
