I have had these digital calipers for a while now. I still can't get a consistant measurement using these. Thats why I prefer the mirror. Anyway, there is a booklet that came with it that is called "Improve Your Measuring Skill". It has a section called "Determine your ideal weight with the desired bodfat percentage"
The example is this,
Assume you have the following data:
Body fat percentage: 24.5
Body Weight: 165 pounds
Desired body fat percentage: 20
Your ideal weight can be determined as follows:
(100-current bodyfat%)/(100- Desired bodyfat %)XCurrent Weight
I can not figure out how they came out with 155.7!!!!
I want to figure out mine. I have no need to be super lean and for me 10% bodyfat would be spectacular. Even 14% would be great!. So if I was to get to 10% what would be my ideal bodyweight?
I am at 18% bodyfat, guessing by my several trys with this product!. I have had it for about 5 years!. I don't really trust it, but I want to figure out this math problem. So my current weight is 232 at 18% bodyfat, 5'10", not that my height matters, I just thought I would throw that in...Can anyone help me figure this out?
