Height and Wingspan
Question : Is there a significant relationship between the hight of a person and the wingspan of the person.

Background study : Leonardo da Vinci, a famous Italian renaissance inventor and painter, was greatly influenced by a man named Vitruvius. The drawing shows a man standing in a square, which is inside a circle. The man has two pair of stretched arms and two pair of stretched legs. These are some of the proportions given for the Vitruvian Man:
…show more content…
The width of his shoulders is one-fourth of his height. The distance from the top of his head to the middle of his chest is one-fourth of his height.
The distance from the middle of his chest to the top of his leg is one-fourth of his height. The distance from the top of his leg to the bottom of his knee is one-fourth of his height. The distance from the bottom of his knee to the bottom of his foot is one-fourth of his height.

Purpose of study : I found Leonardo da Vinci's idea interesting and as such, I want to investigate whether there is a relationship between wingspan and height. Also, we want to determine if wingspan can be used as an ideal representation of height. This might be clinically useful, in the case whereby patients are unable to stand upright for their height to be measured.

Null hypothesis, H0 : There is no significant positive relationship between wingspan and height.

Alternative hypothesis, H1: There is a significant positive relationship between wingspan and height.

Variables:
Dependent variable: Height Independent: WingSpan Controlled: Age,
