# Finding Probability of Temperature Values

Assume the readings on the thermometers are normally distributed with a mean of 0 degress and a standard deviation of 1.00 degree. Find the indicated probability, where z is the reading in degrees.

P(z > -2.575)

I need to show the work and formula used.

Thank you.

Finding Probability

Assume the readings on the thermometers are normally distributed with a mean of 0 degrees and a standard deviation of 1.00 degree. Find the indicated probability, where z is the reading in degrees.

P (z > -2.575)

Since the mean is 0 and the standard deviation is 1, this is a standard normal random variable. Had the mean or standard ...
