    If you know mass you know mass so there is nothing to calculate.

    Rectify your question Kureiji...If you are given with mass, then there is nothing to calculate

    i think kureji said that the height and weight are given
    so if the weight is given you can calculate mass from the formula weight=(mass)(gravity)
