Engineers who are in charge of the production of springs used to make car seats are concerned about the variability in the length of the springs. The springs are designed to be 500 mm long. When the springs are too long, they will loosen and fall out. When they are too short, they will not fit into the frames. The springs that are too long and too short must be reworked at considerable additional cost. The engineers have calculated that a standard deviation of 2 mm will result in an acceptable number of springs that must be reworked. A random sample of 100 springs was measured. Can we infer at the 5% significance level that the number of springs requiring reworking is unacceptably large?
