The body temperatures of adults are normally distributed with a mean of 98.6 degree F and a standard deviation of 0.60 degree F. If 36 adults are randomly selected, find the probability that their mean body temperature is greater than 98.4 degree F.

  • Statistics - ,

    Use z-scores:

    z = (98.4 - 98.6)/(0.60/√36) = ?

    Once you calculate the z-score, check a z-table for your probability. (Remember that the problem is asking to find the probability "greater than" 98.4)

  • Statistics - ,

    -2 z=0.0228 1-0.0228 answer 0.9772

  • Statistics - ,

    .01765
