Question

The mean weight for crates of apples are normally distributed with a mean weight of 34.6 pounds and a standard deviation of 2.8 pounds. Considering 40 crates of apples, what is the probability that the mean weight is more than 33.5 pounds?

Answer #1

**The mean weight of crates of apples are normally
distributed with mean weight of 34.6 pounds, and a standard
deviation of 2.8 pounds.**

**Now, we are considering 40 crates of
apples.**

**We have to find the probability that the mean weight is
more than 33.5 pounds.**

**Now, for the 40 crates of apples, let the mean weight of
the crates of apples is X.**

**Then, X follows normal distribution with mean 34.6 and
standard deviation of**

**We have to find the probability**

**So, the required answer is 0.9934.**
