Explanation:

a tool to measure and evaluate individual weight

Explanation:

The body mass index (BMI) is a method used to estimate the amount of body fat a person has, and therefore determine whether the weight is within the normal range, or on the contrary, is overweight or thin. For this, the height and current weight of the individual are related. This mathematical formula was devised by the Belgian statistician Adolphe Quetelet, so it is also known as the Quetelet index .

The BMI is a formula that is calculated by dividing the weight, always expressed in Kg, by height, always in square meters. An important thing that the nutritionist emphasizes is that the same values cannot be applied in children and adolescents than in adults. To calculate BMI in children, percentiles are used. These are an average in which the child's weight is established and related to his age and sex peers, within the same area; and if it is average, it has an adequate weight; if it is above, there would be a high percentile, so they would be obese, and if it is below, it would qualify as a low weight,

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It is a comparison of your height to your weight, or seeing if you have a healthy weight for your height. It does not measure lean muscle or give an ideal number of calories. It is a way to evaluate your weight.

I believe it's "a tool to measure and evaluate individual weight".
