## BMI History

Body Mass Index Prime is method of using the results of the BMI calculations to quickly and easily rank a person into a category. Eg:

- BMI Prime < 0.74 = Underweight.
- BMI Prime > 0.74 and < 1.00 = Optimal weight
- BMI Prime > 1 = Overweight

BMI is defined by the following formula

- BMI = weight(kilograms) / height
^{2} (metres^{2}) (Metric Units)
- BMI = 703 . weight(pounds) / height
^{2} (inches^{2}) (Imperial Units)
