**BMI measure** is calculated by dividing the *weight* in kilograms by the squared *height* in meters.

For example, if your *weight* is 80kg and your *height* is 1.80m, the *formula* for **calculating** **BMI** will be:

**BMI** = 80 ÷ 1.80^{2}

**BMI** = 80 ÷ 3.24

**BMI** = 24.69

According to the BMI chart, you are at your ideal **weight.**

If you *weigh* 210lb and *measure* 72in, you have to convert these values first:

To convert your weight from pounds to kilograms, you must divide the number by 2.205:

**Weight in kg** = 210 ÷ 2.205

**Weight in kg** = 95.2544

To convert your height from inches to meters, you must divide the number by 39.97:

**Height in meters** = 72 ÷ 39.97

**Height in meters** = 1.8288

The **BMI** *calculation* will be:

**BMI** = 95.2544 ÷ 1.8288 ^{2}

**BMI** = 95.2544 ÷ 3.3445

**BMI** = 28.48

According to the BMI chart, you are **overweight**.
