A random sample of 10 miniature Tootsie Rolls was taken from a bag. Each piece was weighed ona very accurate scale. The results in grams were

3.087 3.131 3.241 3.241 3.270 3.353 3.400 3.411 3.437 3.477

(a) Construct a 90 percent confidence interval for the true mean weight. (b) What sample size

would be necessary to estimate the true weight with an error of ± 0.03 grams with 90 percent confidence?

(c) Discuss the factors which might cause variation in the weight of Tootsie Rolls during

manufacture.
