Prairie Flower Cereal, Inc., is a small but growing producer of hot and ready-to-eat breakfast cereals. The company was started in 1910 by Gordon Thorson, a successful grain farmer. You have been asked to test the cereal-packing process of 18-ounce (510-gram) boxes of sugar-coated wheat cereal. Two machines are used for the packaging process. Twenty samples of five packages each are randomly sampled and weighed. The data are contained in the file Sugar Coated Wheat.
