Metric option -
Divide your weight in kilograms by height in meters squared.
BMI = weight in kilograms / (height in meters)2
- Weight 90 kilograms
- Height 1.9 meters =
- Squaring of Height = (1.9)2 = 3.8
- 90 divided by 3.8 = 23.68
So your BMI is 23.68
Imperial Option -
Your weight in pounds, multiplied by 703, divided by the square of their height in inches.
BMI = (weight in pounds x 703) / (height in inches)2
- Weight 190 lbs
- Height 72 inches (6 feet)
- Squaring of Height = (72)2 = 5,184
- 190 multiplied by 703 divided by 5,184 = 25.76
- So your BMI is 25.76
