**2021 A Level H2 Math Paper 2 Question 10**

A company makes $3$-legged wooden stools from $4$ solid components â€“ a seat in the form of a disc, and $3$ legs each in the form of a long, thin, cylinder. The seats and legs are bought in bulk from another company. Over a period of time it is found that the masses of the seats are normally distributed; $80\%$ of the seats have mass less than $2.1$ kg, and $15\%$ of the seats have mass less than $1.95$ kg.

The masses of the legs, in kg, follow the distribution $\text{N}\left( 1.2,\text{ }{{0.02}^{2}} \right)$.

In order to make the stools, circular holes are drilled in the seats and the legs are fitted into them. In this process, the mass of seats is modelled as being reduced by $9\%$ and the masses of the legs are unchanged.

The holes made in the seats have diameters, in mm, that follow the distribution $\text{N}\left( 31,\text{ }{{0.4}^{2}} \right)$ and the diameters of the legs, in mm, follow the distribution $\text{N}\left( 30.7,\text{ }{{0.3}^{2}} \right)$. If the diameter of a leg is greater than the diameter of a hole, then the leg has to be sanded down to make it fit. If the diameter of a hole is more than $0.8$ mm greater than the diameter of a leg, then padding has to be added when the leg is glued to the seat.
