Dear Delene
Multiply your height in metres by your height in metres and divide the answer into your weight in kg. If you are 1.6 m tall and weigh 60 kg, then 1.6 x 1.6 = 2.56. Divide 2.56 into 60 = 23,4 = BMI. This BMI is in the normal range of 18-25. A BMI of 27 to 30 is in the overweight category and a BMI above 30 is in the obese category.
Best regards
