In brief: Kg/m2

Bmi is a calculated value of your weight in kilograms (1kg=2.
205 lbs) divided by you height in meters squared (1 meter=39.37 in). To square your height, multiply it by itself. I.E. 1.7 x 1.7. It's much easier to use one of the online bmi calculators where you just put in your height and weight and it does all the conversions and calculations for you.
