Hi I tried to write a function called findbmi that would receive the weight and height as input arguments, and would return the BMI but for some reason it's not working. Please help
this is my code
Weight= input('Enter your weight in lbs, or typer 0 for SI units:')
if Weight==0;
Weight=input('Enter your weight in kg:')
Height=input('Enter your height in m:')
function BMI=findbmi(Weight,Height)
BMI= (Weight/(Height^2)) %kg/m^2
else
Height=input('Enter your height in ft:')
function BMI=findbmi(Weight,Height)
BMI=(Weight/(Height^2))*4.882427111
end

Just get rid of these lines:
function BMI=findbmi(Weight,Height)
