According to a random sample taken at 12  A.M., body temperatures of healthy adults have a  bell-shaped distribution with a mean of  98.17degrees°Fand a standard deviation of 0.68 degrees°F.Using  Chebyshev's theorem, what do we know about the percentage of healthy adults with body temperatures that are within 2standard deviations of the mean? What are the minimum and maximum possible body temperatures that are within 2standard deviations of the mean? At least nothing % of healthy adults have body temperatures within 2 standard deviations of 98.17degrees°F.

Question
According to a random sample taken at 12  A.M., body temperatures of healthy adults have a  bell-shaped distribution with a mean 
of  98.17degrees°Fand a standard deviation of 0.68 degrees°F.
Using  Chebyshev's theorem, what do we know about the percentage of healthy adults with body temperatures that are within 2
standard deviations of the mean? What are the minimum and maximum possible body temperatures that are within 2
standard deviations of the mean? At least nothing % of healthy adults have body temperatures within 2 standard deviations of 98.17degrees°F.

Step 1

Given body temperature of healthy adults have a bell shaped curve with mean 98.17oF and standard deviation 0.68oF. 

According to Chebyshev's theorem at least (3/4)th  of the data lie within two standard deviations of the mean, that is, in the interval with...
