Question

A certain brand of nail polish is supposed to have 5 ounces of nail polish. Because the penalty for underfilling bottles is severe, the target mean amount of nail polish is 5.02 ounces. However, the filling machine is not precise, and the exact amount of nail polish varies from bottle to bottle. The quality control manager wishes to verify that the mean amount of nail polish in each bottle is 5.02 ounces so that he can be sure that the machine is not over- or underfilling. He randomly samples 12 bottle of nail polish and obtains the following data:

5.02 |
5.01 |
5.00 |
5.02 |
5.01 |
4.99 |

5.01 |
5.02 |
5.01 |
5.02 |
5.01 |
5.02 |

Assuming the data comes from a normally distributed population, should the assembly line be shut down so that the machine can be recalibrated? Use the critical value method at the α = 0.01 level of significance.

A certain brand of apple juice is supposed to have 64 ounces of
juice. The target mean amount of juice is 64.05 ounces. However,
the filling machine is not precise, and the exact amount varies
from bottle to bottle. The quality control manager wishes to verify
that the mean amount in each bottle is 64.05 ounces so that she can
be sure that the machine is not over-filling or under-filling. She

Problem 2) A coffee machine dispenses coffee into paper cups.
You’re supposed to get 10 ounces of coffee, but the amount varies
slightly from cup to cup. The amounts in ounces measured in a
random sample of 20 cups are given in the Excel file, tab coffee
machine.
a) For one experimental unit, what is the response variable?
Categorical or quantitative?
b) Verify the two conditions for using the normal distribution
for the sample mean: Random sample? Is...

A “fun size” of a Snickers bar is supposed to weigh 20 grams.
Because the selling candy bars under their advertised weight is
severe, the manufacturer calibrates the machine so the mean weight
is 20.1 grams. The quality-control engineer at the M& M-Mars,
the Snickers manufacturer, is concerned about calibration. He
obtains a random sample of 11 candy bars, weighs them and, obtains
the data shown below:
19.68 20.66 19.56 19.98 20.65 19.61
20.55 20.36 21.02 21.50 19.74

Cough-a-Lot children’s cough syrup is supposed to contain 6
ounces of medicine per bottle. However, since the filling machine
is not always precise, there can be variation from bottle to
bottle. The amounts in the bottles are normally distributed with σ
= 0.3 ounces. A quality assurance inspector measures 10 bottles and
finds the following (in ounces):
5.95
6.10
5.98
6.01
6.25
5.85
5.91
6.05
5.88
5.91
Are the results enough evidence to conclude that the bottles are
not filled...

A jar of peanuts is supposed to have 16 ounces of peanuts. The
filling machine inevitably experiences fluctuations in filling, so
a quality-control manager randomly samples 12 jars of peanuts from
the storage facility and measures their contents. She obtains the
