Dear Susan
Take your height in metres (e.g. 1,6) and multiple it by your height in metres (e.g. 1.6), thus 1.6 x 1.6 = 2.56. Then divide your weight in kg (e.g. 50 kg) by the 2.56 = 56/2.56 = 19,5 = BMI. A BMI Between 18 and 25 is normal, between 25 and 30 is overweight and above 30 is obese.
Best regards
