2 1. Suppose the actual diameters x in a batch of steel cylinders are normally distributed with mean 2.5025 x inch and standard deviation .004 x inch. Suppose further, that associated with the measurement of any cylinder is a measurement error independent of (a randomly selected) x and normal with mean 0 and standard deviation device .003 inch. ( is perhaps produced by small inconsistencies in how the measuring device is used and unavoidable/unpredictable small mechanical and electrical effects in the device.) a) Modeling a measurement y (of a randomly selected cylinder) as yx exactly what probability distribution is appropriate for y ? (Name the distribution and give numerical values for its parameters.) b) The modeling in a) (and, actually, all we've done in IE 361) ignores the fact that real measurement is digital (measurements are made only "to the nearest something"). Sometimes (not always) this is OK. But more careful modeling treats a digital measurement * y derived from y by "rounding to the nearest something" as discrete. In the present context, measurements to the nearest .01 inch might be described using the pmf below. Show how the probability for * 2.50 y was derived. Then compare the mean and standard deviation of * y to those of y (from a) ) and x . * y  * f y 2.52 .0062 2.51 .3023 2.50 .6247 2.49 .0666 2.48 .0002 7 pts 7 pts
