[2] A machine used to regulate the amount of dye dispensed can be set so that it discharges an average of = 5.3 mL of dye per can of paint. The amount of dye discharged is known to have a normal distribution with a standard deviation of 0.4 mL. (a) What percentage of paint cans have a dye concentration greater than 6.0 mL? (b) What percentage of paint cans have a dye concentration less than 4.4 mL? (c) What percentage of paint can have a dye concentration of between 4.4 mL and 6.0 mL? (d) If more than 6 mL of dye is discharged when making a certain shade of blue, the shade is unacceptable. Determine the setting for so that only 1% of cans of paint will be unacceptable. (e) Keeping fixed at 5.3 mL, what reduction in is required so that just 1% of cans of paint will be unacceptable.

[5] ( a) What percentage of cans have a dye concentration > 6.0 mL? 0 1.75 Look up 1.75 in the tables and we get… 0.9599 So that the area above Z = +1.75 equals 0.0401 or 4.01% 6.0 5.3 ZX = 0.4 = 1

[6] Statistical tables: are a hangover from the early and middle parts of the last century; look old-fashioned, and make the subject of statistics look old-fashioned; are redundant if you know how to use some basic functions in EXCEL, or the stats package R; unfortunately, probably still needed for the purposes of teaching large classes.

[18] There is an EXCEL function NORMINV that does this exactly: The exact value is 2.326, so our approximation of 2.325 isnt too bad

[21] Example: Kevs Garage Kevs garage sells a popular multi-grade motor oil. When the stock of this oil drops to 20 gallons, a replenishment order is placed. The store manager is concerned that sales are being lost due to stock-outs while waiting for an order. It has been determined that lead-time demand is normally distributed with a mean of 15 gallons and a standard deviation of 6 gallons. The manager would like to know the probability of a stock-out, that is, the probability P(X > 20).

[22] Standard Normal Distribution 0.83 Z Example: Kevs Garage Area =.7967 Area =.2033 z = (X - )/ = (20 - 15)/6 =.83

[23] If the manager of Kevs Garage wants the probability of a stock-out to be no more than.05, what should the reorder point be? z represents the Z value cutting the tail area of.05 Area =.05 Area =.95 0 z Example: Kevs Garage Extra

[26] The corresponding value of X is given by x = + z = 15 + 1.645(6) = 24.87 A reorder point of 24.87 gallons will place the probability of a stock-out during lead-time at.05 Perhaps Kevs should set the reorder point at 25 gallons to keep the probability under.05 Example: Kevs Garage Extra
