I keep on messing up the math calculations :@.
Error
The output was shown as this"

``````BMR: 40.35 pounds
BMI: -83.60 inches
TDEE: -114.95 years
Your BMI classifies you as Obese``````

But it should be this way:

``````BMR is 2308.15
BMI is 40.35
TDEE is 3173.71
Your BMI classifies you as Obese``````

Can people help me with math part?

what are your inputs for weight, height, age, and gender??

what are your inputs for weight, height, age, and gender??

Person's name: Will Smith
Will Smith, are you male or female (M/F): M
Will Smith's weight (pounds): 250
Will Smith's height (inches): 66
Will Smith's age (years): 22

Active Level: 2

People, I really need your help with the calculation or math involved. It is only problem I have left. I cannot move on without finishing this one.

Notice that this line

``System.out.printf("BMR: %.2f pounds\n", healthObj1.getBMI(weightNum, heightNum)); //Pass the weight and height``

you are printing BMR but you are getting BMI. Same with this line

``System.out.printf("BMI: %.2f inches\n", healthObj1.getBMR(genderStatus)); //Pass the gender``

Still working on the computations.

In your MBR computation, you dont have values yet for weightMetricNum and heightMetricNum. I dont see any code in your program that sets this.

My suggestion is to call these methods

setWeight, setHeight to convert your weightNum and heightNum to weightMetricNum and heightMetricNum.

You can also do this in your BMR code.

``finalBMR = 66 + (13.7 * getMetricWeight()) + (5 * getMetricHeight()) - (6.8 * ageNum);``
