Due Week 10 and
worth 140 points
are a manager at a major bottling company. Customers have begun to complain that
the bottles of the brand of soda produced in your company contain less than the
advertised sixteen (16) ounces of product. Your boss wants to solve the problem
at hand and has asked you to investigate. You have your employees pull thirty

the mean, median, and standard deviation for ounces in the bottles.
a 95% Confidence Interval for the ounces in the bottles.
a hypothesis test to verify if the claim that a bottle contains less than
sixteen (16) ounces is supported. Clearly state the logic of your test, the
calculations, and the conclusion of your test.
the following discussion based on the conclusion of your test:
you conclude that there are less than sixteen (16) ounces in a bottle of soda,
speculate on three (3) possible causes. Next, suggest the strategies to avoid
the deficit in the future.
you conclude that the claim of less soda per bottle is not supported or
justified, provide a detailed explanation to your boss about the situation.
Include your speculation on the reason(s) behind the claim, and recommend one
