According to the Vitruvian ratio, the distance from the top of the head to the throat (C) / the distance from the throat to the belly button (D) = 0.618

From top of head to the belly button (A) / from the belly buttom to the bottom of the feet (B) = 0.618

Now if a person has both of these, and is 26cm from the top of the head to the bottom of his neck (not throat), and has 105cm legs, what is his height?

A) 165cm

B) 175cm

C) 185cm

D) 190cm

This is a legitimate high school math exam problem in China.
