5. (z - TABLE) Ball bearings are manufactured with a mean diameter of 6 mm. Because of variability in the manufacturing process, the diameters of the ball bearings are approximately normally distributed, with a standard deviation of 0.22 mm. Any ball bearings that have a diameter less than 5.55 mm or greater than 6.45 mm are discarded. If an order comes in for 3000 ball bearings, how many bearings should be plant manager manufacture?
