# BMI Calculator

I input: weight = input() height = input() x = (weight/height/height) if(x < 18.5): print("Underweight") if(x >= 18.5 and x < 25): print("Normal") if(x >= 25 and x < 30): print("Overweight") if(x > 30): print("Obesity") It outputs: Trace back (most recent call last) File “/usercode/file0.py”,in <module> x = (weight/height/height) TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for ** or pow() : ‘str’ and ‘int’

It's because something is wrong. If you need help on finding out what, pls edit your question with: 1. The error 2. A tag with the language

Jibran Khan sᴜᴊᴀɴ.ᴇ.s. Pls avoid answering with finished code. Remember this is a learning app. We have to help others to know how to solve problems - if we solve for them, there's no learning. Prefer giving hints the OP can follow and find the solution.

You are trying to split string variables that need to be converted to numeric variables.

+2

Make it x = (weight/height**2) not (weight/height/height).

Data entry is in the form of a string even when you enter numbers.

So you mean to convert the input to a float

You have all the conditions nested in one if(x< 18.5)

Change your height to float: Height = float()

Nícolas Nascimento Good. Just check the lesson or docs for 'input' function and review the arguments you passed to it in your code.

Here is the correct code for it weight = int(input()); height = float(input()); x = weight/float(height*height); if x < 18.5: print('Underweight') if x>=18.5 and x<25: print("Normal") if x >= 25 and x < 30: print('Overweight') if x >= 30: print('Obesity')
