Question

The
weight of oranges are normally distributed with a mean weight of
150 grams and a standard deviation of 10 grams. in a sample of 100
oranges, how many will weigh between 130 and 170 grams?

Answer #1

Given that mea = 150 and standard deviation = 10

sample size is n =100

standard deviation for the sample = sd/sqrt(n) = 10/sqrt(100) = 10/10 = 1

we have to find P(130<X<170)

using the formula

P(130<X<170) = P((x-mean)/s<z<(y-mean)/s)

= P((130-150)/1<z<(170-150)/1)

= P(-20<z<20)

= 1.0 (because 99.7% of data fall withiin 3 standard deviation and we are finding the probability of data falling between -20 to 20 standard deviation)

**This means that for a sample of 100 oranges, 100% of
the oranges wil weigh between 130 and 170 grams**

Birth weight, in grams, of newborn babies are normally
distributed with a mean of 3290 grams and a standard deviation of
520 grams. Find the percentage of newborns that weigh between 3000
and 4000 grams. Consider again the birth weights of newborn babies,
where the mean weight is 3290 grams and the standard deviation is
520 grams. Find the weight, in grams, that would separate the
smallest 4% of weights of newborns from the rest.

Assume that the weight of marbles are normally distributed with
mean 172 grams and standard deviation 29 grams. a) If 4 marbles are
selected, find the probability that its mean weight is less than
167 grams. b) If 25 marbles are selected, find the probability that
they have a mean weight more than 167 grams. c) If 100 marbles are
selected, find the probability that they have a mean weight between
167 grams and 180 grams.

A particular fruit's weights are normally distributed, with a
mean of 299 grams and a standard deviation of 10 grams. The
heaviest 3% of fruits weigh more than how many grams? Answer =

Experience has shown that the weight of oranges produced by an
orchard in Tzaneen is normally distributed, with an average weight
(μ) of 120g and a standard deviation (σ) of 20g.
A sample of 115 of these oranges is randomly selected.
a) Determine the standard error for this
sample. (3)
b) What is the probability that the mean weight
of the oranges in the sample lies between 118g and 121.5g?
Interpret your answer

A particular fruit's weights are normally distributed, with a
mean of 608 grams and a standard deviation of 24 grams.
The heaviest 14% of fruits weigh more than how many grams?

A particular fruit’s weights are normally distributed, with a
mean of 273 grams and a standard deviation of 27 grams. The
heaviest 8% of fruits weigh more than how many grams?
