You are to write a Java console application that calculates and classifies BMI (Body Mass Index) for individuals. The number of individuals (N) is fixed at 10, so it should be declared as final int N = 10 in your program.

BMI is calculated using the following equation:

BMI = weight / (height*height)

where weight is in kilograms and height is in metres.

Wikipedia defines the following 8 categories for


Category BMI (kg/m2)
from to
Very severely underweight 15
Severely underweight 15 16
Underweight 16 18.5
Normal (healthy weight) 18.5 25
Overweight 25 30
Obese Class I (Moderately obese) 30 35
Obese Class II (Severely obese) 35 40

For each person, you are to enter their weight (in kilograms) and height (in metres).The application is to then calculate and display the BMI, together with the corresponding 8 level category. When all data has been entered, a summary report consisting of

  1. The lowest BMI
  1. The highest BMI
  1. The average BMI
  1. The number of individuals with normal BMI
  1. The number of individuals with higher than normal BMI
  1. The number of individuals with lower than normal BMI is displayed.
