Statement of a problem № m40152


A manufacturing process is designed to produce bolts with a diameter of 0.5 inches. Once each day, a random sample of 36 bolts is selected and the bolt diameters are recorded. If the resulting sample mean is less than 0.49 inches or greater than 0.51 inches, the process is shut down for adjustment. The standard deviation of bolt diameters is 0.02 inches. What is the probability that the manufacturing line will be shut down unnecessarily? (Find the prob ability of observing an  in the shutdown range when the actual process mean is 0.5 inches.)
