The 'fill' problem is important in many industries, such as those making cereal, toothpaste, beer, and so on. If an industry claims that it is selling 12 ounces of its product in a container, it must have a mean greater than 12 ounces or else they will be fined by the FDA. However, the FDA will allow a small percentage of the containers to have less than 12 ounces. You may assume the amount in the container is normally distributed.
