Assume that the readings on the thermometers are normally distributed with a mean of 0 degrees and standard deviation of 1.00degrees C. Assume 3 ​% of the thermometers are rejected because they have readings that are too high and another 3 ​% are rejected because they have readings that are too low.  Find the two readings that are cutoff values separating the rejected thermometers from the others.The cutoff values are       degrees.

Question

Assume that the readings on the thermometers are normally distributed with a mean of 0 degrees and standard deviation of 1.00degrees C. Assume 3 ​% of the thermometers are rejected because they have readings that are too high and another 3 ​% are rejected because they have readings that are too low.  Find the two readings that are cutoff values separating the rejected thermometers from the others.

The cutoff values are       degrees.
