Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of health based on height and weight. It can be calculated by taking your weight in kilograms and dividing it by the square of your height in meters. The interpretation of BMI for people 20 years or older is as follows:

BMI, Interpretation, Exercises, Medicine
BMI < 18.5 Underweight 2 miles running Vitamin tablets
18.5   ≤ BMI < 25.0 Normal 2 miles running NA
25.0   ≤ BMI < 30.0 Overweight 3 miles running Pills
<30.0 ≤ BMI Obese 4 miles running + weights Insulin shot

Write a program that prompts the user to enter a weight in pounds and height in inches and displays the BMI. Note that one pound is 0.45359237 kilograms, and one inch is 0.0254 meters. Once you computed BMI, you should give the recommendations to input user.
