If statment help

I am wanting to write a program for a BMI calculator that eventually will record details for several entries.

However to start with I need to be able to just complete one calculation.

Below is my code which works up to the if statement what I am trying to do is once I have completed the calculation be able to take that result and use the if statement to indicate if the result is normal, under or over.

I don't know how to take the result and put it into the if statement.

Code:
```  #include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
int main()
{

float height, weight,bmi;

printf("Enter Weight in Kg's and Height in METERS  \n");
scanf("%f%f", &weight, &height );

bmi = weight/(height*2);

printf("Your BMI is %.2f\n",bmi);

scanf("%");

if("%f"<=25){
printf("your weight is normal\n");
}

return(0);```

2. Try to separate the input with a space:
Code:
` scanf("%f %f", &weight, &height );`
What do you try to do with this:
Code:
```   scanf("%");

if("%f"<=25){```
You should use the proper variable (bmi) in the if-statement.
3. That is utter nonsense.
Code:
```   scanf("%");

if("%f"<=25){```
The scanf does nothing. And the if statement is comparing the address with 25. Since the first K or so of memory belongs to the operating system, such as the interrupt vector table, I think it's a very safe guess that that string literal, which is co-located with the program image in RAM, is far greater than memory address 25.
