Step 1

It is given that the mean and standard deviation are 0 and 1, respectively.

Step 2

Let the random variable X represents the temperature.

In this case, the temperature that separates the rejected thermometers from the other represents area of 0.09 to the left of x and area of 0.91 to the right...
