Question

Suppose certain coins have weights that are normally distributed
with a mean of 5.395 g and a standard deviation of 0.058g.A vending
machine is configured to accept those coins with weights between
5.325g and 5.465 g

If 290 different coins are inserted into the vending machine
,what is the expected number of rejected coins?!

The expected number of rejected coins is...(round to nearest
integer)

Answer #2

= 5.395

= 0.058

To find P(X<5.325 OR X > 5.465):

Case 1: For X <5.325:

Z = (5.325 - 5.395)/0.058 = - 1.2069

Table of Area Under Standard Normal Curve gves area = 0.3869

So,

P(X<5.325) = 0.5 - 0.3869 = 0.1131

Case 2:P(X>5.465):

Z = (5.465 - 5.395)/0.058= 1.2069

Table gives area = 0.3869

So,

P(X>5.465) = 0.5 - 0.3869 = 0.1131

So,

P(X<5.325 OR X > 5.465) = 2 X 0.1131 = 0.2262

So,

Expected number of rejected coins = 0.2262 X 290 = 65.598 =
**66** (Rounded to integer)

So,

Answer is:

**66**

3. Weights of quarters are normally distributed with a mean of
5.67 g and a standard deviation of 0.06 g. Some vending machines
are designed so that you can adjust the weights of quarters that
are accepted. If many counterfeit coins are found, you can narrow
the range of acceptable weights with the effect that most
counterfeit coins are rejected along with some legitimate
quarters.
