 Question 205520: Shipments of meat, meat by-products, and other ingredients are mixed together in several filling lines at a pet food canning factory. After the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, the pet food is placed in eight-ounce cans. Descriptive statistics concerning fill weights from the two production lines, from two independent samples are given in the following table. Line A, Line B, X, 8.005, 7.99 S, 0.012, 0.005 n, 11, 16 Assuming the population variances are equal, at the 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence of the difference between the mean weigh of the cans filled on the two lines?

This is evidence the mean weight of the cans from the two lines differs. Cheers, Stan H.
