III. DISCUSSION Part A. DiscussionThe manufacturer achieved precision and accuracy in putting 1.0 grams of sugar in each sugar packet, because the mass of sugar within each sugar packet was within the range of .999-1.060, averaging to 1.0238, and having a standard deviation of .025352. The manufacturer achieved accuracy in obtaining 1.0 gram of sugar in each packet for the most part, with the mass of sugar in each packet having percent errors of 3.1% or below and staying with in ±.5 of 1.0 grams. For only one mass was the percent error 6%, which was not accurate to the manufacturer’s description of 1.0 grams. If the manufacturer had stated each packet contained 1.000 grams of sugar then the measured masses of sugar would still be precise, because the standard deviation is .025352, or approximately ±.03 of the mean mass, 1.0238 grams. However, most of the measurements (1.029,1.031, and 1.060 grams) would not be accurate because they would deviate out of ±.001 of 1.000 grams.
