Question: An advertisement for the 30 inch Wonder that appeared in

An advertisement for the “30 inch Wonder” that appeared in the September 1983 issue of the journal Packaging claimed that the 30 inch Wonder weighs cases and bags up to 110 pounds and provides accuracy to within 0.25 ounce. Suppose that a 50 ounce weight was repeatedly weighed on this scale and the weight readings recorded. The mean value was 49.5 ounces, and the standard deviation was 0.1. What can be said about the proportion of the time that the scale actually showed a weight that was within 0.25 ounce of the true value of 50 ounces?
