## Unraveling the Mathematics Behind BMI

To better understand the BMI formula, let's break it down step by step.

### Step 1: Convert Height to Meters

For metric units, such as centimeters (cm) and kilograms (kg), convert your height from centimeters to meters. To do this, divide your height in centimeters by 100.

### Step 2: Square the Height

Next, square the height obtained in Step 1. This involves multiplying the height in meters by itself.

### Step 3: Divide Weight by Squared Height

Finally, divide your weight in kilograms by the squared height calculated in Step 2. The result is your BMI.
