How to calculate BMI

If you want to calculate your BMI, you have to find out your weight and height first. Once you know these values, you can arrive at the result by following the two steps mentioned below:

  • 1

    Multiply your height by itself (height X height ).

  • 2

    Divide your weight by the answer you get in.

  • The equations for calculating the BMI are as follows:

    International System of Units (SI)BMI = weight (kg) ÷ (height (m))2


    Fora 177 cm (1.77m) individual weighing 75 kg

    BMI = 75 / (1.77 * 1.77) = 75/ 3.13 = 23.96

    Imperial SystemBMI = weight (lb) ÷ (height (inches))2 × 703


    Fora 160-pound, 58” (68”) individual weighing 75 kg,

    BMI = (160/ 68*68) * 703 = (160/4624) * 703 = 24.3

    You can also use an online BMI calculator to find out your BMI and eliminate human errors.
