#3. Body Mass Index calculator #find the body mass index - def BMI(mass, height): return mass / (height ** 2) if __name__ == '__main__': try: #get the input from users mass = float(input("Enter your mass(kg): ")) height = float(input("Enter your height(m): ")) print("BMI : {}".format(BMI(mass, height))) except: print("Error: Please enter the number")
