    Default BMI calculation

    Hi I am just starting to learn about java.I am trying to calculate BMI of an individual using the JOptionPane.showInputDialog method who I am asking to enter 4 things first name,last name,height in inches and weight in pounds. I want to show the BMI using JOptionPane.showMessageDialog method showing their full name and BMI.What am I doing wrong ?

     
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
     
    public class P1 {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
     
    		String FirstName = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter your First name");
    		String LastName = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter your Last name");
    		double height = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter your height in inches");
    		int inches = Integer.parseInt(height);
    		int metre= inches*0.0254;
     
    		double weight =JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter your weight in pounds");
    		int pounds = Integer.parseInt(weight);
    		int kilo= pounds/2.2;
     
    		String response=
    				"kilo"*sqrt"metre" +"FirstName"+"Lastname"
     
    		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, response);
    	}
     
    }

    Thanks Norm. He probably got this solved in one of his cross-posts, so there's no need to answer this question.
