# BMI Calculator with Source Code (HTML, CSS and JavaScript)

## What is BMI?

BMI (Body Mass Index) means the ratio of a person’s weight (kg) and the square of that person’s height (m). By calculating BMI, one can get an overall idea about one’s health condition. It indicates one’s health condition in some different range. If anyone’s BMI is less than 18.5, he/she is unhealthy. Basically, he/she is unhealthy because he/she is too thin. Again, any value over 25.0 also indicates an unhealthy situation, and this time he/she has overweight. If it is over 30, then his/her condition is seriously dangerous.

## How to make a BMI calculator using HTML, CSS and JS?

Making a BMI calculator is not a big deal. You can make it easily using only HTML and JS. If you are interested in making some formatting, then you may use a bit of CSS. Here we are giving the source code we used to make the tool you’ve seen earlier. But before giving that, we think you should know some more stuff about this.

Though we made this tool which can calculate only from kg and meters. But in our everyday life, you may measure your height in Feet and Inches. So, you can add those options as well. But as we tried to keep it simple, we simply did it. So the Source code is below. Copy them and paste into your editor and then keep editing as your will.
