The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a statistical measure
of weight ranges. BMI is calculated by dividing your
weight by your height.
BMI uses a mathematical formula that takes into
account both a person's height and weight. BMI
equals a person's weight in kilograms divided by
height in meters squared. It is a measure of body
fat based on height and weight that applies to both
adult men and women.

intended to give you an idea of how heavy you are
relative to other people of your height.
