Thanks for the information.But,HW3(Height in cms) , It is showing the values from a absolute range of 400-900cms.For v437, V438 also it is showing absolute same range.As the maximum height is 213cms(7 feet). How can anyone be 400cms?.I kindly request you to help me in understanding this. It will be useful for my project. Thank you.

Pls read data/ variable name carefully...it says data in 1 decimal point...so 400 means 400/10=40 cms...same for weight variable
