    Finding Temperature Values. In this exercise, assume that the readings on the thermometers are normally distributed with a mean of 0o and a standard deviation of 1.00oC. A thermometer is randomly selected and tested. In this case, draw a sketch, and find the temperature reading corresponding to the given information.

    If 1.0% of the thermometers are rejected because they have readings that are too high and another 1.0% are rejected because they have readings that are too low, find the two readings that are cutoff separating the rejected thermometers from the others.
