1. Step-by-step explanation:

Let the height of Maria = M inches

Height of Nancy = N inches

Height of Brad = B inches

Height of Chad = C inches

Since Maria is 11 inches shorter than Nancy,

So, M = N – 11 ——(1)

So, B = C – 11 ——-(2)

If Maria is shorter x inches shorter than Brad

Then M = B – x —–(3)

Now we replace the value of M from equation (3) to equation (1)

B – x = N – 11

B = N + x – 11

Now we place the value of B from equation (2)

C – 11 = N + x – 11

C = N + x ——–(4)

That reveals that Nancy is shorter than Chad.

If Maria and Brad are of same height, that means M = B or x = 0 [from equation (3)]

From equation (4),

N = C

Heights of Nancy and Chad will be same.
