Calculation of Body Mass Index

What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?


Body mass index is a value obtained by dividing the weight into the square of the height and it gives us information about the person’s weight. The range determined by the World Health Organization (WHO), allows us to determine whether the person has a healthy weight. High BMI values can be indicative that there is more fat in a person’s body than it should be.
