Since Barbara is 65 inches, Ron is 64 inches and Amy is 60 inches.

Since the heights, from least to greatest are 60, 64, and 65, the median height is 64.

Let A = Amy's height So, A + 4 = Ron's height And A + 5 = Barbara's height

If Barbara's height = 65, then we can write: A + 5 = 65 Solve to get: A = 60

So, Amy's height is 60, Ron's height is 64 and Barbara's height is 65 So, the median height = 64

R = A + 4 B = A + 5

Given A + 5 = 65

So, A = 60 , R = 64 and B = 65

Thus, median height will be (E) 64 _________________
