    A factory produces chocolates bar with nominal weight of 70 g each. The weight of the chocolates bars are normally distributed with mean 60g and variance 1.5 g. What is the probability that a chocolate bar has a weight greater than the nominal weight by 10%?

    Please check the number and wording of this post. Distinguish between variance and standard deviation and check the mean and nominal weights.
