Question

A manufacturing process produces bags of cookies. The
distribution of content weights of these bags is Normal with mean
15.0 oz and standard deviation 1.0 oz. We will randomly select
*n* bags of cookies and weigh the contents of each bag
selected.

Which of the following statements is true with respect to the
sampling distribution of the sample mean, ¯xx¯?

According to the law of large numbers, if the sample size,
*n*, increases, ¯xx¯ will tend to be closer to 15
ounces.

If the population standard deviation increases, the standard deviation of ¯xx¯ will increase.

If the sample size, *n*, increases, the standard
deviation of will decrease.

All of the above.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

mean = = 15

standard deviation = = 1.0

The following statements is true with respect to the sampling distribution of the sample mean, is

According to the law of large numbers, if the sample size, n, increases, will tend to be closer to 15 ounces.

If the population standard deviation increases, the standard deviation of will increase.

If the sample size, n, increases, the standard deviation of will decrease.

All of the above are correct .

A process produces bags of refined sugar. The weights
of the contents of these bags are normally distributed with a
standard deviation of 1.2 ounces. The contents of a random sample
of twenty five bags had a mean weight of 19.8 ounces. Find a 98%
confidence interval for the true mean weight for all bags of sugar
produced by the process. interpret the results

Weights of chocolate chip bags follow an approximately
normal distribution with mean 11.16 ounces and a standard deviation
of .15 ounce. Use this information to answer the next two
questions:(use stat-crunch)
2. One bag of chocolate chips weighed 1.55 standard
deviation above average. What proportion of bags weighs more than
this bag? (4 decimal places)
3. The lightest 10% of chocolate chip bags weigh less than
how many ounces? (3 decimal places)

Suppose that weights of bags of potato chips coming from a
factory follow a normal distribution with a mean of 14.5 ounces and
a standard deviation of .7 ounces. How many standard deviations
away from the mean is a bag that weighs 15.9 ounces?

1.The weight of potato chip bags marketed as 16-ounce bags
follows a distribution that has a mean of 17.0 ounces and a
standard deviation of 1.0 ounces. Suppose a sample of 100 of these
bags of potato chips has been randomly sampled.
The mean weight of the 100 bags would be considered a

1. The weights of bags of baby carrots are normally
distributed, with a mean of 29 ounces and a standard deviation of
0.31 ounce. Bags in the upper 4.5% are too heavy and must be
repackaged. What is the most a bag of baby carrots can weigh and
not need to be repackaged?

A sample of 15 small bags of Skittles was selected. The mean
weight of the sample of bags was 2 ounces and the standard
deviation was 0.12 ounces. The population standard deviation is
known to be 0.1 ounces. (Assume the population distribution of bag
weights is normal)

1. Assume that the weights of all girl scout cookie boxes are
normally distributed with a mean of 9.0 ounces and a standard
deviation of .24 ounces. If you were to generate a distribution of
sample means for cookie box samples of size n=25 from this
population, what would you expect the mean of sampling distribution
to be? 8.75 oz, 0.05,9.0,225
2. a random sample of n=16 cookie boxes is obtained from the
population of girl scout cookies (mean= 9.0...

1) A sample of 61 small bags of the same brand of candies was
selected. Assume that the population distribution of bag weights is
normal. The weight of each bag was then recorded. The mean weight
was two ounces with a standard deviation of 0.12 ounces. The
population standard deviation is known to be 0.1 ounce.
a) (8 points) Construct a 90% confidence interval for the
population mean weight of the candies.
b) (2 points) Explain in a complete sentence...

A manufacturing process produces bags of chips whose weight is
N(16 oz, 1.5 oz). On a given day, the quality control officer takes
a sample of 36 bags and computed the mean weight of these bags. The
probability that the sample mean weight is below 16 oz is
