A cell is 1/1,000 of an inch. How many cells in an average human body, which is 66 inches (5'6")?

there are 1000 cells/inch
so, in 66 inches, there are 66000 cells
This is a poorly worded problem, however, since it does not say anything about width and depth. It appears that a cell is considered to be a thin slice, 1/000" thick, across the whole body.
BOGUS problem!
Or, you have not included everything given. :(
