You can still calculate it all by yourself by following this simple arithemetics

Measure Out Both Your Weight And Height

  • Weigh yourself on a bathroom scale.
  • Measure your height in inches using the yardstick or measuring tape.


How To Calculate Your BMI Manually:

  • You will need a  pencil, paper and calculator to perform the following BMI calculation.

Write Out the values:

Height(inch) = 80

Weight(pounds) = 180

  • Multiply the value of height(inch) by itself

80 * 80 = 6400

  • Divide your weight in pounds by the Answer above

180 / 6400 = 0.028125

  • Multiply that answer above  by a constant conversion factor of 703 strictly if you are calculating the weight in pounds, but if you are calculating in kg you have to skip this step.

0.028125 * 703 = 19.771875

  • The answer is your body mass index.


Judging Your Answer:
