Hi i was wondering if you could help me with the following question people?:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The weight of a mint produced by a machine is a random variable with mean 10gm variance 2gm^2.

1. What is the approximate probability that a bag with contents weighing 1000g will have more than 98 but less than 103 mints?

2. find the target weight for the contents so that there will be at least 100 mints in each bag with a probability of 0.99

I dont know what to put for n, and how to go about answering the question help people?
