Homework Help: College Business Statistic

Posted by Heather on Saturday, July 7, 2012 at 4:13pm.

One operation of a mill is to cut pieces of steel into parts that will later be used as the frame for front seats in an automobile. The steel is cut with a diamond saw and requires
the resulting parts to be within 0.005 inch of the length specified by the automobile company. The data in the file
comes from a sample of 100 steel parts. The measurement reported is the difference in inches between the actual
length of the steel part, as measured by a laser measurement device, and the specified length of the steel part. For example, the first value, 0.002, represents a steel part that is 0.002 inch shorter than the specified length.
a. Construct a percentage histogram.
b. Is the steel mill doing a good job in meeting the requirements set by the automobile company? Explain.
