### How BMI Calculator Work?

#### Example

Measure Body Weight: Suppose the weight is 70 kg.

Measure Body Height: Suppose the height is 175 cm.

#### Solution

When you enter the above details, the BMI calculator processes these details into the BMI formula. Here is how:

BMI = Weight (kg) / Height (cm)

The calculator performs some internal calculations to provide you with accurate results.

Convert Height to Meters:

175 cm / 100 = 1.75

Calculate Height Squared:

1.75 meters x 1.75 meters = 3.0625 m2

Calculate BMI:

BMI = 70 (kg) / 3.0625 m2 = 22.89

BMI = 22.89 = 22.9

A BMI of 22.9 falls within the "Normal weight" range according to standard BMI categories.
