    Corpse Temperature Problem

    I have a bunch of problems like this one.

    can any one lend me a hand?

    A corpse is found at 7:00am his temperature is 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
    By 8:30 am his temperature is at 82 degrees Fahrenheit.
    What time did he die?
    *Normal body temp is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
    *Room temp. is 74 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Thank you.
