 Question 395259: A chemical company produces a substance composed of 98% cracked corn particles and 2% zinc phosphide for use in controlling rat population in sugarcane field. Production must be carefully controlled to maintain the 2% zinc phosphide because too much zinc phosphide will cause damage to the sugarcane and too little will be ineffective in controlling the rate population. Records from past production indicate that the distribution of the actual percentage of zinc phosphide present in the substance is approximately mound-shaped with a mean of 2.0% and standard deviation o 0.08%. a) If the production line is operating correctly, approximately what proportion of batches from a days' production will contain less than 1.84% of zinc phosphid? b) Suppose one batch chosen randomly actually contains 1.80% zinc phosphide. Does this indicate that there is too little zinc phosphide in today's production? Explain your reasoning. Click here to see answer by jrfrunner(365)
