Formulae

When calculating kilograms, the result must be rounded to one decimal. Percentages may then be computed.

In the preparation of the tables above, the numbers for stone and pounds are calculated with more decimals than shown. This may affect the last decimal place after the percentages have been computed, but this is of little importance.

Mean ideal weight for women is

kilograms = 0.67005 × cm − 48.138
stone = 0.268008 × inches − 7.58044
pounds = 3.7521 × inches − 106.1261

The body height does not include shoes. The functions are valid for heights from 150 cm through 180 cm (4′ 11″ through 5′ 11″).

Mean ideal weight for men is

kilograms = 0.7099 × cm − 53.922
stone = 0.283947 × inches − 8.49126
pounds = 3.9753 × inches − 118.8777

The body height does not include shoes. The functions are valid for heights from 160 cm through 195 cm (5′ 3″ through 6′ 6″).
