# A manufacturer of potato chips produces large bags of chips. The product weight is approximately normally distributed with a mean of 14.8 oz and a standard deviation of 1.2 oz

(a) Find the probability of obtaining a bag of this company chip that weighs less than 14 oz

(b) Round the value, you obtained in part the nearest hundredth explain how you could conduct a simulation using the random number table displayed below to estimate the number of bags of chips you would have to buy before obtaining one that weighs less than 14 oz. perform your simulation seven times. Start at the left-most right in the first row and move across by marking directly on or above the table, by making directly or above the table make your procedure clear enough that some can follow what you did, and record the number of bags of chips for each of your trials.

(c) Based on your result in part b what is the expected number of bags of potato chips you will have to buy before finding one that weighs less than 14oz
