A scale simply measures your total body weight in kilograms (or pounds). It doesn’t measure how many of those kilograms are muscle, bones, blood, and fat. This ratio is called your body composition and is referred to as percent body fat or %BF. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds and have a BMI of 25, you would be classified as a “normal” weight.
BMI is 30 or higher, then you are considered overweight or obese. BMI can fluctuate from day to day, week to week, month to month, year to year, and even over the course of a lifetime. This is why it is important to keep track of your weight throughout your life.

What is 3/4 of a pound on a scale?
Three-quarters of a pound is 12 ounces. A three-quarter pound of flour is the same as a one-pound loaf of bread. The difference is that the flour has been ground into a fine powder, which is then mixed with water to form a dough. When the dough is ready to be baked, the water is removed, and the powder is added to the mixture to make it dough-like.
What are the decimals on a weight scale?
For instance, a scale that has markings for tenths would show markings that stand for 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5 and so forth. The space in between a set of these markings is called a decimal interval.
Are digital scales as accurate?
Digital bathroom scales are more accurate than mechanical ones. For the most accurate reading, the bathroom scale must be set up correctly. If you’re using a digital scale, make sure it’s set to read in milliliters, not ounces. If you use a mechanical scale to measure liquids, you’ll need to adjust the scale for liquid volume.
What does the scale 1 to 50 mean?
The drawing of the object is 50 times larger than the object. An object 450mm long would be represented by a line 9mm long. If you want to draw an object that is smaller than your drawing, you need to use a smaller scale.
You can do this by dividing the size of your object by the length of the line you are drawing. In this case, we would divide the width of our drawing by 9 and the height by 450. The result will be the same as if we had used a larger scale, but it will not be as accurate.
