What is the confidence interval estimate of the population mean u?
D°F<u<O°F
(Round to three decimal places as needed.)
What does this suggest about the use of 98.6°F as the mean body temperature?
O A. This suggests that the mean body temperature is significantly higher than 98.6°F.
O B. This suggests that the mean body temperature could very possibly be 98.6°F.
OC. This suggests that the mean body temperature is significantly lower than 98.6°F.
