Metric conversion formula = weight (kg)/height (m)2Non-metric conversion formula = [weight (pounds)/height (inches)2] × 703
Example of BMI calculation: A person who weighs 78.93 kilograms and is 177 centimeters tall has a BMI of 25:Example of BMI calculation: A person who weighs 164 pounds and is 68 inchs (or 5' 8") tall has a BMI of 25:
weight (78.93 kg)/height (1.77 m)2 = 25[weight (164 pounds)/height (68 inches)2] × 703 = 25
