A hardware store chain has just received a truckload of 5000 electric drills. Before accepting the shipment, the purchasing manager insists that 9 of the drills be randomly selected for testing. He intends to measure the maximum power consumption of each drill and reject the shipment if the mean consumption for the sample is greater than the 300 watts listed on the product label. Unknown to the purchasing manager, the drills on the truck require an average of 295 watts, with a standard deviation of 12 watts. Stating any additional assumptions you are using, find the probability that the truckload of drills will be rejected.
