Using a combination of input, if, elif, and else, write a program that asks the user their blood pressure. Compare the blood pressure against the following chart and save the Status to a variable named BP_STATUS. At the end of the program, print a nice sentence with a formatting string to tell you your status and use .format to replace the formatting string with your BP_STATUS.
