Homework Help: Math

Posted by Stephanie on Sunday, October 4, 2009 at 11:01am.

Crunchy Corn Chips are packaged in bags labeled "net weight 10 ounces." In fact, the weight of a bag of Crunchy Corn Chips follows a normal distribution with mean ounces and standard deviation ounces. Worried about customer complaints and potential lawsuits, the manufacturers decided that no more than 0.5% of bags of Crunchy Corn Chips should be underweight. There are two possible adjustments that can be made: change the mean setting on the filling machines while leaving the standard deviation constant, or leave the mean at 10.4 ounces and try to adjust the standard deviation of 0.26 ounces. Describe the necessary adjustments under each of these two plans. Which do you think is more feasible? Explain.
