5. A machine that produces plastic jar lids is set to produce lids with a diameter of 9 cm. The standard deviation of the diameters, due to the production process, is 0.02 cm. A quality-control worker checks a sample of 25 lids from each production run and finds the mean diameter. One day, the mean diameter for the sample is 8.99 cm. Find a 95% confidence interval for the true mean diameter of lids produced that day.
A.8.95 to 9.03 cm
B.8.993 to 9.047 cm
C.8.982 to 8.998 cm
D.8.97 to 9.01 cm


6. A soft drink can filling machine operator knows the machine is supposed to fill cans to 12 ozs. and the standard deviation for the volume of all cans filled by the machine is 0.19 ozs. In order to determine if the cans are being under or overfilled, samples of 25 cans are drawn from each production run and the mean volume of the sample found. If the company uses 95% control limits on its process control charts, would a sample mean volume of 12.08 be out of the control limits?
A.Yes
B.No
