1 BES Tutorial Sample Solutions, S1/11 WEEK 8 TUTORIAL EXERCISES (To be discussed in the week starting April 18) 1. A machine produces sausages with a mean length of 15cm and a standard deviation of 1.5cm. A random sample is taken of 36 sausages made by the machine. What is the probability that the sample mean length of these sausages is greater than 14.8cm?
