The heat index measures the contribution humidity ma= kes to high temperatures in reducing the body’s ability to cool itself.  Heat escapes from the body partly through the evaporation of sweat.  Humidity in the air slows evaporation, so it feels hotter. From the table below, determine the least amount of humidity for which a temperatu= re under will feel= over .
