Calculate Your BMI


To give you a rough estimate, which is enough for this measurement, use the following calculation:

Take your height in inches and multiply it by the same number or squaring the number.

  • Example: 6 feet tall = 72 inches     Multiply 72 x 72 = 5,184

Now take you body weight and divide it by the calculation you come up with for the number above.

  • Example:  190 lbs.    190 divided by 5,184 = .03665

Take the sum or this number (.03665) and multiply it by 703

  • Example:  .03665 x 703 = 25.7

This is the BMI number (25.7)
