Question

The weights of the fish in a certain lake are normally distributed with a mean of 20 lb and a standard deviation of 9. If 9 fish are randomly selected, what is the probability that the mean weight will be between 17.6 and 23.6 lb?

Answer #1

= 20

= 9

n = 9

SE = /

= 9/ = 3

To find P(17.6 < <23.6):

Case1: For from 17.6
to mid value:

Z = (17.6 - 20)/3 = - 0.80

Table of Area Under Standard Normal Curve gives area = 0.2881

Case2: For from mid
value to 23.6:

Z = (23.6 - 20)/3 = 1.20

Table of Area Under Standard Normal Curve gives area = 0.3849

So,

P(17.6 < < 23.6) = 0.2881 + 0.3849 = 0.6730

So,

Answer is:

**0.6730**

1. The weights of a certain brand of candies are normally
distributed with a mean weight of 0.8542 g and a standard deviation
of 0.0521 g. A sample of these candies came from a package
containing 454 candies, and the package label stated that the net
weight is 387.3 g. (If every package has 454 candies, the mean
weight of the candies must exceed 387.3 Over 454= 0.8531
g for the net contents to weigh at least 387.3 g.) a. If...
