Normal Distribution for Inexpensive Thermormeters

Assume the readings of inexpensive thermometers for the temperature of the freezing point of water are normally distributed, have a mean of 0 degree C, and a standard deviation of 1 degree C. Find the probability that a randomly selected thermometer will have a reading of greater than -2 degree C for the freezing point of water. How do I go about in getting the probability?

Solution Summary

The solution determines the temperature based on normal probabilities.
