In the Malagasay Indian tribes, it is against the law for a son to be taller than his father. If a son is taller, he must give his father money or an ox. Suppose a father is 5 feet 10 1/2 inches tall and his son 5 feet 6 3/4 inches tall. How many more inches can the son grow before he is as tall as his father?
