San Diego State University Operations And Supply Chain Management Assignment Help - Mean
Question - A soft-drink machine at a steak house is regulated so that the amount of drink dispensed is
approximately normally distributed with a mean of 200 milliliters and a standard deviation of 15
milliliters. The machine is checked periodically by taking a sample of 9 drinks and computing the
average content. If x falls in the interval 191 < x < 209, the machine is thought to be operating
satisfactorily; otherwise, we conclude that μ does not equal 200 milliliters.
a) Find the probability of committing at type I error when μ = 200 milliliters.
μ = 200, n = 9, ơ = 15 and ơ x = 15/3 = 5
So, z1 = (191-200)/5 = -1.8, and z2 = (209 - 200)/5 = 1.8,
with a α = 2P(Z < -1.8) = (2)(0.0359) = 0.0718
b) Find the probabil ...Read More
