Ques%on 1 A brewery has a beer dispensing machine that pours beer into the company’s 12 ounce bo8les. The distribu<on of the amount of beer actually dispensed by the machine follows a Normal distribu<on with a standard devia<on of 0.2 ounces. The company can control the mean amount of beer dispensed by the machine. (a) What value of the mean should the company set if it wants to guarantee that 98.5% of the bo8les contain at least 12 ounces (the amount on the label)? (b) Suppose now that the distribu<on of pours is Normal with mean 12.1 and standard devia<on 0.5. Customers get very angry when their beers have less than the adver<sed 12 ounces of beer in them. Calculate the propor<on of customers that could get angry because of this reason .

### 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.
