Question

A Manufacturer of cheese filled ravioli supplies a pizza restaurant chain. Based on data collected from its automatic filling process, the amount of cheese inserted into the ravioli is normally distributed. To make sure that the automatic filling process is on target, quality control inspectors take a sample of 10 ravioli and measure the weight of cheese filling. They find a sample mean weight of 15 grams with a standard deviation of 1.5 grams.

A) Describe the sampling distribution for the sample mean

B) Calculate the standard error. Show steps.

C) For a more accurate determination of the mean weight, the quality control inspectors wish to estimate it within 0.25 grams with 99% confidence (using the t-table below). How many ravioli should they sample? Show reason for choice.

DF | Alpha |

8 | 3.3554 |

9 | 3.2498 |

10 | 3.1693 |

Answer #1

Given that, smaple size ( n) = 10

Sample mean =15 grams

Sample standard deviation ( s ) = 1.5 grams

A) since, sample size is small and population standard deviation is unknown so the sampling distribution of the sample mean is student-t distribution.

B) standard error =

=> standard error = **0.4743**

C) given that, margin of error ( E ) = 0.25 grams

A 99% confidence level has critical value with df = 10 - 1= 9 is,

We want to find, the sample size ( n ),

Required sample is, **380**

The owner of Gino’s Pizza restaurant chain believes that if a
restaurant is located near a college campus, then there is a linear
relationship between sales and the size of the student population.
Suppose data are collected from a sample of n =

campuses with the following reported sample statistics:
X= Population (1000s)
Y = Sales ($1000s)

A quality control specialist for a restaurant chain takes a
random sample of size 12 to check the amount of soda served in the
16 oz. serving size. The sample mean is 13.10 with a sample
standard deviation of 1.55. Assume the underlying population is
normally distributed. We wish to construct a 95% confidence
interval for the true population mean for the amount of soda
served. What is the error bound? (Round your answer to two decimal
places.)

A quality control specialist for a restaurant chain takes a
random sample of size 13 to check the amount of soda served in the
16 oz. serving size. The sample mean is 13.70 with a sample
standard deviation of 1.58. Assume the underlying population is
normally distributed. We wish to construct a 95% confidence
interval for the true population mean for the amount of soda
served.

places.)

A quality control specialist for a restaurant chain takes a
random sample of size 13 to check the amount of soda served in the
16 oz. serving size. The sample mean is 13.30 with a sample
standard deviation of 1.54. Assume the underlying population is
normally distributed. We wish to construct a 95% confidence
interval for the true population mean for the amount of soda
served.
What is the error bound? (Round your answer to two decimal
places.)

BridgeRock is a major manufacturer of tires in the U.S.. The
company had five manufacturing facilities where tires were made and
another 20 facilities for various components and materials used in
tires. Each manufacturing facility produced 10,000 tires every
hour. Quality had always been emphasized at BridgeRock, but lately
quality was a bigger issue because of recent fatal accidents
involving tires made by other manufacturers due to tread
separation. All tire manufacturers were under pressure to ensure
problems did not...
