A company did a quality check on all the packs of nuts it manufactured. Each pack of nuts is targeted to weigh 18.25 oz. A pack must weigh within 0.36 oz of the target weight to be accepted. What is the range of rejected masses, x, for the manufactured nuts?
x < 17.89 or x > 18.61 because x − 18.25 > 0.36
x < 17.89 or x > 18.61 because x − 0.36 + 18.25 > 0
x < 18.25 or x > 18.61 because x − 18.25 > 0.36
x < 18.25 or x > 18.61 because x − 0.36 + 18.25 > 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rejected if \[x18.25>.36\] i.e if the difference between the weight of the package is further away form 18.25 by more than .36

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A pack must weigh within 0.36 oz, thus anything that weighs less than: 18.250.36 oz should be rejected.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As well as anything that weighs greater than 18.25+0.36 oz.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This translates into: x<17.89 or x>18.61
