Question

The manufacturer of cans of salmon that are supposed to have a net weight of 6 ounces tells you that the net weight is actually a normal random variable with a mean of 5.97 ounces and a standard deviation of 0.23 ounce. Suppose that you draw a random sample of 34 cans. Find the probability that the mean weight of the sample is less than 5.94 ounces.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that ,

mean = = 5.97

standard deviation = = 0.23

n = 34

= = 5.97

= / n = 0.23 / 34 = 0.0394

P( < 5.94) = P(( - ) / < (5.94 - 5.97) /0.0394 )

= P(z < -0.76 )

= 0.2236

probability =0.2236

The manufacturer of cans of salmon that are supposed to have a
net weight of 6 ounces tells you that the net weight is actually a
normal random variable with a mean of 6.2 ounces and a standard
deviation of 0.11 ounce. Suppose that you draw a random sample of
37 cans. Find the probability that the mean weight of the sample is
less than 6.19 ounces.

QUESTION 1
The weight of cans of Salmon is normally distributed with mean μ
9.92 and the standard deviation is σ0.285. We draw a random sample
of n= 64 cans. What is the sample Error?
Tip: sample error = σ/sqrt(n) and answer with 4 decimals.

A machine that fills beverage cans is supposed to put 12 ounces
of beverage in each can. Followingare the amounts measured in a
simple random sample of eight
cans.12.1612.0411.7812.0312.0312.0912.2711.84Assume that the sample
is approximately normal. Can you conclude that the mean volume
differsfrom 12 ounces? Use the Į = 0.1level of significance.

A manufacturer claims that the mean weight of flour in its
32-ounce bags is its 32.1 ounces. A T-Test is performed to
determine whether the mean weight is actually less than this. The
mean weight for a random sample of 45 bags of flour was 30.7 ounces
with a standard deviation of 2.5 ounces. Test the claim at the 5%
significance level.
a) Check the assumptions:
b) Hypotheses (State in symbols and in words): Ho: Ha:
c) Test Statistic: ___________________...

A food company that sells salmon to stores asserts the weights
of the salmon have a mean of 35 pounds and a standard deviation of
4 pounds.
If a large seafood restaurant purchases a random sample of 100
salmon, give the properties (and provide a sketch) for the sampling
distribution for the sample mean weight in the purchase.
Find the probability the sample mean weight will be at least 34
pounds.

The fill weight of tomato paste in seven cans tested were: 7.2,
6.8, 6.7, 7.3, 6.9, 6.8 and 7.0 ounces. Suppose the manufacturer
requires a standard deviation of less than 0.12. Does the data
indicate that the standard deviation is less than 0.12 ounce? Test
using α = 0.05.

Most soda cans list the volume of soda as 12 fluid ounces. As
with all process, some variation occurs when filling soda cans.
Suppose that a company knows this and tries to over-fill cans a
bit, so that the actual volume of soda in a can follows a normal
distribution with mean 12.1 fluid ounces and standard deviation .15
fluid ounces.
a) What proportion of soda cans filled by this process will
contain less than 12 fluid ounces? (In other...
