What is the equation for calculating your BMI?

"BMI" stands for Body Mass Index. I know that the equation involves your weight and height (in inches), but I do not remember the exact equation. I also know that if it is over 30 you are in the overweight danger zone, and that if it is under 19 you are in the underweight danger zone. I KNOW mine must be well over 30, but I would like to know how high it actually is.
