In brief: Use a calculator

There are so many online calculators now for bmi that you don't have to do the calculation yourself.
If you choose to, the formula is: bmi = weight in kilograms / (height in meters x height in meters) . That is ( weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared). I hope that the attached table is helpful.
