Unformatted text preview: Sawmill A produces boards whose lengths follow a Gaussian distribution with a mean of 209.4 cm and a standard deviation of 5 cm. A board is accepted if it is longer than 200 cm, but it is rejected otherwise. Sawmill B produces boards with the same standard deviation, but with a mean length of 210.1 cm. Find the proportion of rejected boards if boards are drawn from a pool of the production of the sawmills, and the sawmill outputs have a 3:1 ratio between A:B. Problem 4) Due to a variety of sources, the length of a machined part has a Gaussian distributed length with a mean of 11 cm and a standard distribution of 0.2 cm. If the length must be between 10.6 cm and 11.2 cm, what percentage of parts are rejected?...
