Kevin is 14 inches taller than George. The difference between Kevin and Richard is two inches less than that between Richard and George. Kevin at 6'6" is the tallest. How tall are Richard and George?

Open Calculator

Answer

If Kevin is 6'6" tall, George must be 5'4" tall, and Richard must be 6' tall because he is 6" shorter than Kevin and 8" taller than George.
