Assume the body temperatures of healthy adults are normally distributed with a mean of 98.20 F and a standard deviation of 0.62F
a) if you have a body temperature of 99.00F, what is you percentile score?
b)Convert 99.00F to a standard score or a z-score
c) Is a body temperature of 99.00F unusual? why or why not?
d) fifty adults are randomly selected. what is the likelihood that the mean of their body temperature is 97.98F or lower?
e) A person’s body temperature os found to be 101.00F is the result unusual why?
f) What body temperature is the 95th percentile?
g) What body temperature os the 5th percentile?
h) a hospital uses 100.6F as the lowest temperature considered to indicate a fever. what percentage of normal and healthy adults would be considered to have a fever? does this percentage suggest that a cutoff of 100.6F is appropriate?
