Using a normal distribution function, select the value of x(mean) that makes the probability integral of P(x) from x = 0 to 8.0 equal to 0.99, when sigma = 0.03

You may find the JAVA tool at this website for problems of this type.

I used it to get an answer of 7.93 oz.
Enter mean of 7.93, sigma = 0.03 and the range of P(x) 0 to 8.0 oz, and you get a probability of 0.990

Find the zvalue with a right tail of 1%: z = 2.3263

Find the xvalue using x = zs+u
x = 2.3263*0.01+8 = 8.0233
========
Let that be the mean amount of coffee to be dispensed
