      The BMI calculator is little misleading if one didn’t read the details. Perhaps you should show the input as ” ft.ins ” instead of just inches alone. The first time I converted the total to inches and the value was erroneous.

      WEBSITE ERROR IN FORMULA
      Imperial data input screen currently (March 31, 2014) asks for

      Your height: in inches. Example 6.1.

      but calculates based on feet, giving inaccurate low result.

      Imperial users expect to enter [feet], [inches], as
      “I am [6] foot [1.5] inches tall.”
      which translates to “I am 73.5 inches tall.”

        We are sorry for any inconvenience. Please use only 2 digits when inputting height. For example if your height is 6 foot and 1.5 inches please input your height as 6 foot 2 inches. Calculation will still be 99% accurate.
