You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Press CTRL + D to add the file called frmBMI.vb from the above folder into your project (or right click on the project and choose to add it as an existing item). 

Change your project's properties to make this the default form for your project.  When you run your project, you should see this:

Write the BMI function to make this work, using the constants supplied at the top of the form's class.  A person's BMI is their weight in kilograms divided by their height in metres squared, and there are 12 inches in a foot and 14 pounds in a stone!
