Given a matrix hw (height and weight) with two columns, calculate BMI using these formulas:
The first column is the height in inches. The second column is the weight in pounds.
function bmi = bmi_calculator(hw)
% Convert the height values from inches to meters
% Convert the weight values from lbs to kilograms
% Calculate the bmi for height and weight combination and return the output variable 'bmi'
bmi =new_weight./new_height.^2 ;
To test the code on MATLAB, the input hw was used as a table and it runs perfectly on MATLAB. But here it shows that the solution is wrong. Could anybody please explain?
The problem specifies that the input hw is a matrix with two columns (not a table). So, the error is saying that you cannot use dot indexing on a matrix.
Didn't know this is how simple BMI is.
I've got the right values but I've failed the assertion somehow?
The expected output is a column vector containing ALL the bmi values, whereas your code returns a single bmi value i.e. the last one. Hope that helps!
increase the tolerance value..i had to be very specific to match the result
