    The mean weight of loads of coal placed in train cars by a loading machine is 43.0 tons with a standard deviation of 8.0 tons. Assuming that the weight of loads placed in the train cars by this loader are normally distributed, if a random sample of 9 loads is chosen for a weight check, find the probability that the mean weight of those loads is more than 40.60 tons.

    Compute your answer rounded to four decimal places. Do not use any labels or symbols other than a decimal point. Simply provide the numerical value.
