Unformatted text preview: normally distributed with mean 25.7 kg and standard deviation 0.50 kg.
(a) What is the probability a bag selected at random will weigh less than 25.0 kg?
(2) In order to reduce the number of underweight bags (bags weighing less than 25 kg) to 2.5% of
the total, the mean is increased without changing the standard deviation.
(b) Show that the increased mean is 26.0 kg.
(3) It is decided to purchase a more accurate machine for filling the bags. The requirements for this
machine are that only 2.5% of bags be under 25 kg and that only 2.5% of bags be over 26 kg.
(c) Calculate the mean and standard deviation that satisfy these requirements.
(3) 249 The cost of the new machine is $5000. Cement sells for $0.80 per kg.
(d) Compared to the cost of operating with a 26 kg mean, how many bags must be filled in
order to recover the cost of the new equipment?
