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...
