A road bike frame is advertised to weigh no more than 900g. The actual frame weight distribution is normal with standard deviation of 20g. What should the mean weight be so that the advertisement claim is true for al least 99% of all frames?

Solution:-

Given that,

x = 900 g

standard deviation = = 20 g

Using standard normal table,

P(Z < z) = 99%

= P(Z < z ) = 0.99

= P(Z < 2.33 ) = 0.99

z = 2.33

Using z-score formula,

x = z * +

900 = 2.33 * 20 +

= 900 - ( 2.33 * 20 )

= 853.4

4. A yogurt cup is advertised as containing 6 oz of yogurt but the machine that fills the cups doesn't put exactly 6 oz of yogurt into each cup. The amount varies slightly. The amount of yogurt follows a normal distribution with a mean that can be set to any desired amount by adjusting the machine. The standard deviation of the amount of the yogurt is always 0.05 oz, regardless of the mean amount. If the company wants to be...
