Rule of Hasse ..........is to calculate the age of the foetus on the basis of the length according to months of gestation, for
first five months of pregnancy, age is calculated by
the square root of the length in centimeters (for
example, if the foetus is 16 cm, the
age of the foetus would be 4 months)

For the next five months
of pregancy, age is calculated by dividing the length
by 5 (for example, if the foetus is 35 cm, age of the foetus would be 35/5 = 7 months)

Hence rule of Hasse is to calculate the age of the fetus when you already know its length.
