Ever wondered about how to figure your body mass index (BMI)?
Here is the equation to use:
(Your weight in pounds) divided by (your height in inches – squared) times 703
If I weigh 140 and am 5’5″ (65 inches) tall the equation looks like this:
140 ÷ 4225 (65 x 65) x 703 = 23.29 BMI This number puts me in the normal range.
