you 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 (30) bottles off the line at random from all the shifts at the
bottling plant. You ask your employees to measure the amount of soda there is
in each bottle. Note: Use the data set provided by your instructor to complete
Write a two (2) page report in which you:
1 Calculate the mean,
median, and standard deviation for ounces in the bottles.
2 Construct a 95%
Confidence Interval for the ounces in the bottles.
3 Conduct 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.
4 Provide the following
discussion based on the conclusion of your test:
a. If 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.
b. If 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 (1) strategy geared toward
mitigating this issue in the future.
