how do you solve for w in a bmi equation, if only height (h=65 inches)is known and w (weight) is what is to be solved for? Bmi=703w/h^2

    multiply by h^2:

    Bmi*h^2 = 703w
    so,
    w = Bmi*h^2/703
    = Bmi*65^2/703
    = 6.0 * Bmi

    Unless you have a Bmi, you can't get a numeric answer for w.
