Question

Crossett Trucking Company claims that the mean weight of its delivery trucks when they are fully loaded is 5,800 pounds and the standard deviation is 270 pounds. Assume that the population follows the normal distribution. Fifty trucks are randomly selected and weighed. Within what limits will 90% of the sample means occur? (Round your z-value to 2 decimal places and final answers to 1 decimal place.)

A. Sample means _____ to _____

Answer #1

= 5800 pounds

= 270 pounds

n = 50

For sampling distribution of mean, P( < A) = P(Z < (A - )/)

= = 5800 pounds

=

=

= 38.184

Let the 90% of the sample means occur between M and N

P(X < M) = 0.5 - 0.9/2 = 0.05

P(Z < (M - 5800)/38.184) = 0.05

Take the value of Z corresponding to 0.05 from standard normal distribution table.

(M - 5800)/38.184 = -1.65

M = 5737.0 pounds

Similarly,

(N - 5800)/38.184 = 1.645

N = 5863.0 pounds

90% of the sample means occur from 5737.0 pounds to 5863.0 pounds

Crossett Trucking Company claims that the mean weight of its
delivery trucks when they are fully loaded is 5,250 pounds and the
standard deviation is 160 pounds. Assume that the population
follows the normal distribution. Forty trucks are randomly selected
and weighed.
Within what limits will 95 percent of the sample means occur?

The Smoky Bear Trucking Company claims that the average weight
of a fully loaded moving van is no more than 12,000 lb. The highway
patrol decides to check this claim. A random sample of 30 Smoky
Bear moving vans shows that the average weight (X bar) is 12,200
lb. with a sample standard deviation (S) of 800 lb. *If needed, use

Question 1
The production manager of a camera manufacturer claims that
their
latest digital camera is able to focus in just 0.0025 seconds on
the
average. A random sample of the focus time in seconds for 20
