Problem 2) A food processor claims that at most 10 percent of his jars of instant coffee conta less coffee than claimed on the label. To test this claim, 20 jars of his instant coffee a randomly selected and the contents are weighed. Using statistical techniques, he fin that if 4 or fewer of the twenty jars contain less coffee than claimed on the label, his manufacturing process is in control. a) Find the probability that 4 or fewer of the twenty jars contain less coffee than claimed on the label, if the manufacturing process is actually producing only five per that are underweight. P(jars <= 4) = 1 b) Find the same probability if the process actually produces 10 percent underweigh P(jars <= 4) = 0.96 c) Find the same probability if the process actually produces 15 percent underweigh P(jars <= 4) = 0.83
