What is BMI ?
Body Mass Index is a person's weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness.
Metric Method - The metric formula accepts height measurements in meters and weight in kilograms.
BMI = (Weight in Kilograms)/(Height in meters * Height in meters)
1. Multiply your height by itself.
2. Divide your weight in kilograms by the value calculated in step 1.
Imperial (US) Method - The imperial formula accepts height measurements in inches and weight in pounds.
BMI = (Weight in Pounds * 703)/(Height in inches * Height in inches)
1. Multiply your weight in pounds by 703.
