Find the z- score corresponding to the given value and use the z- score to determine whether the value is unusual. Consider a score to be unusual if its z- score is less than -2.00 or greater than 2.00.  Round the z- score to the nearest tenth if necessary. A body temperature of 96.7 F given that human body temperatures have a mean of 98.20 F and a standard deviation of 0.62 F.Please include detailed steps

Question

Find the z- score corresponding to the given value and use the z- score to determine whether the value is unusual. Consider a score to be unusual if its z- score is less than -2.00 or greater than 2.00.  Round the z- score to the nearest tenth if necessary. 

A body temperature of 96.7 F given that human body temperatures have a mean of 98.20 F and a standard deviation of 0.62 F.

Please include detailed steps

Step 1

Given body temperature 96.7 F
Mean = 98.20 F
Standard deviation = 0.62 F

Z score is the distance of the data point from mean in terms os standard deviatio...
