According to the article "A Critical Appraisal of 98.6 Degrees F, the Upper Limit of the Normal Body Temperature, and Other Legacies of Carl Reinhold August Wunderlich" published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the body temperatures of adults are normally distributed with a mean of 98.276 and a standard deviation of 0.728.
 

What is the probability that a randomly selected person's body temperature is between 97.93 and 98.45? Round your answer to 4 decimal places.

First find the temperature

 

sqrt (10^2 +(-4)^2 = 10.77

 

cos = adj/hypotenuse

       = 10/10.77 = .92847          sec = 1/cos = 1/.92847 = 1.077
