Accrotime is a manufacturer of quartz crystal watches. Accrotime researchers have shown that the watches have an average life of 32 months before certain electronic components deteriorate, causing the watch to become unreliable. The standard deviation of watch lifetimes is 5 months, and the distribution of lifetimes is normal. (a) If Accrotime guarantees a full refund on any defective watch for 2 years after purchase, what percentage of total production will the company expect to replace?
