    Answer:

    The dog is 20 inches tall now.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that:

    Height of dog when it was a puppy = 5\frac{1}{2} inches

    Height of dos now = 14\frac{1}{2} than previous height

    It means that we will add this height in the height of dog when it was a puppy.

    Height of dog now = 5\frac{1}{2}+14\frac{1}{2}

    Height of dog = \frac{11}{2}+\frac{29}{2}=\frac{11+29}{2}=\frac{40}{2}

    Height of dog = 20 inches

    Hence,

    The dog is 20 inches tall now.
