An automated coffee machine is set to dispense coffee into cups. The amount of coffee dispensed by the machine into each cup can be regarded as being normally distributed, with a mean of 330 ml and standard deviation of 6 ml. (a) What is the probability that the amount of coffee dispensed into a cup exceeds 327 ml? (2) (b) What amount is exceeded by 95 % of the cups? (3) The vendor of this machine suspects that the machine is dispensing more than the desired amount. For that purpose, she collects data about 60 cups and finds that the average amount per cup was 332 ml. (c) What is the probability that this machine with its current settings can give a sample with average 332 ml or higher? (3) 80 (d) Hence or otherwise, test at the 5 % level of significance, the vendor's hypothesis that the machine is dispensing more than the desired amount of 330 ml. (3) Still not convinced of the results, the vendor asks one of her managers to measure the amount of coffee in a random sample of 25 other cups. The results were as follows: 334.993 342.208 330.679 331.612 324.537 (e) 342.237 329.612 331.704 341.288 337.487 327.654 336.626 330.974 318.524 335.379 336.643 338.207 334.564 333.665 330.758 326.982 329.834 324.996 335.889 332.540 Given that this sample has a mean of 332.78 ml (correct to 2 decimal places), find a 95 % confidence interval for the true population mean. Give your answer correct to 2 decimal places. (4) (f) Hence or otherwise test, at the 5 % level of significance, the hypothesis that the machine is not dispensing the required amount. (2) (g) Another objective of this second exercise is to determine whether the proportion of cups that are overfilled is more than 0.5. Find a 95 % confidence interval for the true proportion of cups that have more coffee than the vendor desires. (4) (Total 21 marks) 81 116. In an effort to study the level of intelligence of students entering college, a psychologist collected data from 4000 students who were given a standard test. The predictive norms for this particular test were computed from a very large population of scores having a normal distribution with mean 100 and standard deviation of 10. The psychologist wishes to determine whether the 4000 test scores he obtained also came from a normal distribution with mean 100 and standard deviation 10. He prepared the following table (Expected frequencies are rounded to the nearest integer): Score ≤ 70.5 20 70.5–80.5 90 80.5–90.5 90.5–100.5 (a) observed frequencies expected frequencies Score observed frequencies expected frequencies 6 100.5–110.5 1450 96 110.5–120.5 499 507 575 120.5–130.5 80 76 1282 ≥ 130.5 4 4 Copy and complete the table, showing how you arrived at your answers. (5) (b) Test the hypothesis at the 5 % level of significance. (6) (Total 11 marks) 117....
