This is a graph with two panels. Each panel shows a scatter diagram.

In the first panel, the horizontal axis shows abdominal circumference in centimetres and is numbered 40, 60, 80, 100, 120. In the second panel, the horizontal axis shows mid upper arm circumference in centimetres and is numbered 15, 20, 25, 30, 35. In both panels, the vertical axis shows body mass index in kilogrammes per square metre and is numbered 10, 20, 30, and 40.

In the left panel, there is a fairly strong relationhsip about a straight line from abdominal circumference = 50, body mass index = 15 to abdominal circumference = 110, body mass index = 31. The cloud of points lies between body mass index = 10 and 20 when abdominal circumference = 50, to between body mass index = 30 and 40 when abdominal circumference = 110.

In the right panel, there is a fairly strong relationhsip about a straight line from mid upper arm circumference = 16, body mass index = 14 to mid upper arm circumference = 33, body mass index = 31. The cloud of points lies between body mass index = 14 and 22 when mid upper arm circumference = 20, to between body mass index = 30 and 40 when mid upper arm circumference = 33.
