  1. Let's pretend you go to see another doctor after this and this doctor is a little more competent.
  2. She has purple hair, and when you asked the purple-haired doctor to repeat the
  3. measurement three times, she gives you the following numbers for your height.
  4. If you calculate the average, you find an average height of 1.97 meters.
  5. Now my question is--what's a better estimate of your height?
  6. Is it the 2.00 meters measured by the green doctor
  7. or the 1.97 meters measured by the purple-haired doctor?
