Topic: Normal Distribution 105. At an oceanside nuclear power plant, seawater is used as part of the cooling system.
This raises the temperature of the water that is discharged back into the ocean. The amount
that the water temperature is raised has a uniform distribution over the interval from 10 to
25ºC.
What is the probability that the temperature increase will be less than 20ºC?
A. 0.40
B. 0.67
C. 0.80
