STAT 400 (Chapter 5.6) Spring 2012 1. The true weight of “10 - pound” sacks of potatoes processed at a certain packaging house follows a normal distribution with mean of 10.1 pounds and standard deviation of 0.2 pounds. a) What is the probability that a sack weighs at least 10 pounds? P ( X 10 ) = 2 . 0 1 . 10 10 Z P = P ( Z 0.50 ) = 1 ( 0.50 ) = 1 0.3085 = 0.6915 . b) A random sample of 9 sacks is selected. What is the probability that the average weight of these 9 is at least 10 pounds? Case 2. Z X σ μ n . P ( X 10 ) = 9 2 . 0 1 . 10 10 Z P = P ( Z 1.50 ) = 1 ( 1.50 ) = 1 0.0668 = 0.9332 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
