A linear rotary bearing is designed so that the distance A linear rotary bearing is designed so that the distance between the retaining rings is 0.875 inch. The quality-control manager suspects that the manufacturing process needs to be recalibrated because the mean distance between the retaining rings is greater than 0.875 inch. In a random sample of 36 bearings, he ?nds the sample mean distance between the retaining rings is 0.876 inch with standard deviation 0.005 inch.
