BMI calculator

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement of a person's weight with respect to his or her height. It is more of an indicator than a direct measurement of a person's total body fat. BMI, more often than not, correlates with total body fat. This means that as the BMI score increases, so does a person's total body fat

I started by taking the height and weight of the user

#height in float

height = float(input("Height(m): "))

#weight in float

weight = float(input("Weight(kg): "))

As seen from the code snippet above, the height is in meters and weight in kilograms

I then calulated the Body Mass Index using the code snippet below

#calculating the body mass index

bmi = (weight)/(height*height)

The bmi is then calculated and printed to the screen to three decimal places to make it more practical

print(f"Body Mass Index is {round(bmi,3)}")

The code snippet above prints the resulting output to the screen
