# Calculating BMI (Body Mass Index)

If I'm given the following values:

Weight = 15st 9lbs Height = 5.8 ft

If we want to calculate the BMI, would it be: 33.30?

And, in the final result we do NOT put any units, right?

Thanks.

Usually, BMIs are quoted as if it they were unitless, but technically they're in kg/m². –  Henning Makholm Oct 31 '11 at 16:30
