Mathematical Formula for BMI
[ weight in pounds /( height in inches) x (height in inches) ] x 703 = BMI
Example: If a person weighs 150 pounds and is 5 feet 3 inches tall (they would be 63 inches tall) their BMI would be 26.5
[150 lbs / (63 inches) x (63 inches) ] x 703 = 26.5
To use the table, find your height in the left-hand column labeled height. Locate your weight (in pounds) to the right. The number at the bottom of that weight column is the BMI for your height and weight.
