The average body temperature is

#### Explanation:

The formula we are going to use is:

First, we need to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, because the Celsius scale has the same magnitude as Kelvin -except

#T_"C" = (T_"F" - 32) / 1.8#

#=(98.6-32)/1.8#

#=66.6/1.8#

#=37#

Now we add

#T_"K" = T_"C" + 273#

#=37+273#

#=310#

Therefore, the average body temperature in Kelvin is

Hope this helps :)
