This answer was edited.Hey Body Mass Index (BMI) calculation is very easy by using the formula BMI = kg/m

^{2}. Where kg is a person’s weight and m^{2}is height in meter squared.BMI applies most adults between 25 – 65 years. BMI more than 25.0, that tells the person is fat. BMI 18.5 to 24.9 shows the person is healthy

Formula for USC units:BMI = 703 x Mass(lbs) / height

^{2}(in)Formula for SI, Metric units:BMI = Mass(kg) / height

^{2}(m)With an example it’s easy to understand. As you mentioned the personage is 42 by assuming their weight is 85kg and height would be around 170 cm = 1.7 m.

Let’s apply the formula

BMI = kg/m

^{2}BMI = 85/1.7

^{2}BMI = 29.41 kg/m

^{2}The above

BMI 29.41is more thanBMI 25.0. Hence the person is more FAT.Body mass index also noted as BMI is your weight to height proportion.

First, find your height in meters. Stand along with your heels, your bottom and your shoulders touching the wall. Then, have a disciple measure your height at the crown of your head, in meters. the best thanks to do that is with the measuring instrument in your toolbox.

Then, you’ll need your weight in kilograms. If you only have a scale that measures pounds, that’s okay. you’ll be able to easily convert pounds to kilograms – just multiply your weight in pounds by .45. So if you weigh 68 kilograms.

Take your weight in kilograms and divide your weight by your height in meters. Then divide the solution by your height in meters again. That’s your BMI!
