The measure can be calculated using the following formula: BMI = (weight * 703) / (height * height) Notice that two values, weight (in pounds) and height (in inches), must be input by the user. The program then uses the formula to calculate the BMI and displays that value (with an appropriate message) to the user. Modularize the program. The program should have separate modules to display a welcome message, get the user’s input, calculate the body mass index, display the output, and display a termination message. Include a new module that will determine the category the calculated BMI indicates and include that category in the output displayed to the user. BMI BMI Categories bodyMassIndex < 18.5 underweight bodyMassIndex 18.5 -24.9 normal weight bodyMassIndex 25-25.9 overweight bodyMassIndex >= 30 obese Note: the following is a link to a windows based BMI calculator created by the National Health and Human Services - National Institutes of Health. The categories can be found on this website. http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/ Part 1: Requirements Analysis : list input variables, processes (modules), and output variables Input variables: height, weight Processes: displayWelcome, getInput, calculateBMI, displayOutput, displayTerminationMessage Output variables: bodyMassIndex, category Part 2: Hierarchy Chart Part 3: Write the pseudocode for this problem...
