Question

A manufacturer produces 25-pound lifting weights. The lowest actual weight is 24 pounds, and the highest is 26 pounds. Each weight is equally likely so the distribution of weights is uniform. A sample of 100 weights is taken.

Find the probability that the mean actual weight for the 100 weights is less than 24.9.

Answer #1

TOPIC:Application of the Central limit theorem(CLT).

A manufacturer produces 25-pound lifting weights. The lowest
actual weight is 24 pounds, and the highest is 26 pounds. Each
weight is equally likely so the distribution of weights is uniform.
A sample of 100 weights is taken.
Find the probability that the mean actual weight for the 100
weights is greater than 24.9. (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)

Let x1, x2, . . . ,
x100 denote the actual net weights (in pounds)
of 100 randomly selected bags of fertilizer. Suppose that the
weight of a randomly selected bag has a distribution with mean 75
lb and variance 1 lb2. Let x be the sample mean
weight (n = 100).
(a) What is the probability that the sample mean is between
74.75 lb and 75.25 lb? (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
P(74.75 ≤ x ≤ 75.25)...

assume that in a particular region, wild salmon have an average
weight of 5 pounds with a standard deviation of 1.6 pounds.
a. Find the probability that a salmon's weight is between 4.1
pounds and 5.5 pounds.
b. Find P80, the 80th percentile of salmon weights.
c. Assume that a sample of 25 salmon is randomly taken from the
preceding population and the mean of their weights recorded. Give
the mean μx and the standard deviation σx of the sample...

A study measures blood pressure among college students. The
lowest actual blood pressure is 70, and the highest is 130. Each
blood pressure test is equally likely. It follows a uniform
distribution. [Sean Hint: The data distribution has mean 100 and
standard deviation 17.32]. A sample of 100 students’ blood pressure
is taken.
(a) What is the probability that the mean of blood pressure is
less than 97. [Hint:First use the...

The local bakery bakes more than a thousand 1-pound loaves of
bread daily, and the weights of these loaves varies. The mean
weight is 1.1 lb. and 4 oz., or 612 grams. Assume the standard
deviation of the weights is 26 grams and a sample of 50 loaves is
to be randomly selected.
(a) This sample of 50 has a mean value of x, which
belongs to a sampling distribution. Find the shape of this sampling
distribution.

What is the chance a randomly selected employee would get a
non-zero bonus amount? What is the chance a randomly selected
employee would get at least $6000? What is the expected bonus value
of the bonus amounts? What are the variance and standard deviation
of the bonus amount? Binomial Suppose according to past data for a
small boutique, about 30% of the customers who walk into the store
purchase at least one item. Today 10 individual customers walked

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...
