Language/Type: VB interactive programs parameters

Write a complete console program in a module named BMI with a Main subroutine that prompts for user input and calculates 2 people's body mass index (BMI), using the following formula:

BMI = weight / height2 * 703

The BMI rating groups each person into one of the following four categories:

BMI Category
below 18.5 class 1
18.5 - 24.9 class 2
25.0 - 29.9 class 3
30.0 and up class 4

Match the following example output:

This program reads data for two people
and computes their body mass index (BMI).

Person 1's information:
height (in inches)? 70.0
weight (in pounds)? 194.25
BMI = 27.9
class 3

Person 2's information:
height (in inches)? 62.5
weight (in pounds)? 130.5
BMI = 23.5
class 2

Have a nice day!

You should break down your program into several subroutines/functions, each of which helps solve the overall problem.
