There is no correct answer, but to calculate your body mass index, the function is:

BMI=(weight in kg)/(height in meters times itself)

For pounds and inches, it is (weight lbs/height in inches times itself) times 703 : where the division of weight times height squared is completed before being multiplied by 703.

For people over 20, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a BMI of between 18.5 and 24.9.

For recommendations from the CDC for people under 20, see the related link.
