Homework Help: Statistics/Probability

Posted by Stuck on Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 7:54pm.

Bottles of water are labeled as containing 12 oz. Statistics students weighted the content of 7 randomly chosen bottles and found the mean weight to be 12.15 oz.

Assume that bottles of water are filled so that the actual amounts are normally distributed with a mean of 12.00 oz. and a standard deviation of .09 oz. Find the probability that a sample of 7 cans will have a mean amount of at least 12.15 oz.

I took (12.15-12)/.09 and got 1.66666667. I took the value for 1.7 in the normal distribution table and got .9525. I entered that as my answer and it wasn't right, so I thought that maybe it was supposed to be 1-.9525, but that wasn't right either. Should the 7 cans somehow fit into this?
