BMI index

Calculate BMI (body mass index, an index indicating obesity, overweight, normal weight, underweight) man weighing m = 71 kg and height h = 170 cm. Index is calculated according to equation (formula):

BMI=mh2BMI = \dfrac{ m }{ h2 }


With BMI index is possible to compare people of different heights in the following categories:

BMI Category
bellow 18,5Underweight
18,5 - 24,9 Normal weight
25,0 - 9,9 Overweight
30,0 - 34,9 Obesity 1st grade
35 - 39,9 Obesity 2nd grade
above 40 Obesity 3rd grade


Result

BMI =  24.6

Solution:

BMI=71/(1.7 1.7)=24.6BMI=71/(1.7 \cdot \ 1.7)=24.6
