Assume the body temperature of healthy adults are normally distributed with a mean of 98.2F and a standard deviation of 0.62F.

If you have a body temperature of 99.00F, what is your percentile score?

Convert 99.00F to a standard score(or a z-score).

Is a body temprature of 99.00F unusual? Why or Why not?

Fifty adults are randomly selected. What is the likelyhood that the mean of their body temprature is 97.98F or lower?

A persons body temprature is found to be 101.00F. Is the result unusual? Why or Why not?

What body temprature is the 95th percentile?

What body temprature is in the 5th percentile?

Bellevue Hospital in NY uses 100.6F as the lowest temprature considered to indicate a fever. What percentage of normal and healthy adults would be considered to have a fever? Does this percentage suggust that a cutoff of 100.6F is appropriate?
