Please help with this question.The mean weight of the contents of samples of 30 bags of sugar has
standard error 0.008kg.The mean is 1.0042kg.Standard deviation is 0.042kg Choose the option that is closest to the
probability, to three decimal places, that the mean weight of the
contents of samples of 30 bags of sugar will be 1kg or more.
Options for Question
A 0.700 B 0.800 C 0.824
D 0.858 E 0.887 F 0.932
Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means
SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)
SEm = SD/√(n-1)
If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to that Z score.
