Inserting a formula on a slide

Jun 12, 2012

I am wondering whether it is possible to insert a formula on a slide, that will calculate the Body Mass Index automatically when the user fills in the body weight and length.

I am sure it would be possible, I just cannot figure out how to do the calculation.

BMI Calculation: [150 ÷ (65)2] x 703 = 24.96


Weight = 150 lbs, Height = 5'5" (65 inches)

The "703" is just a conversion factor.

Sure this could be done by collecting 2 x variables, and perhaps a bit of Javascript to do the "squaring" and the multiplication, just can't spend  more time on it at the moment. Perhaps someone else can help cracking this one?
