2. Suppose that a fish hatchery in the state of Colorado has asked you to determine
the average weight of the trout they are releasing into streams and lakes in
Colorado. If the fish are too small, licensed fishermen complain about the
undersized fish being caught. If the fish are too large, the rate of feeding the fish
is too high (i.e., fish size increases with the amount of feed), it costs the state
more to feed the fish than was built into the hatchery budget.
Let’s suppose that the state wants the average weight of the trout released into
streams and lakes from a fish hatchery to be 308 grams (g) or 11 oz. (Note:
There are 28 g in one ounce.) Suppose you have been asked to analyze the
hypothetical data in Fig. 3.11 which gives the weight of a random sample of
trout released during the past week from a Colorado hatchery. The hypothetical
data are given in Fig. 3.11 .
