A soft drink vending machine is supposed to fill cups with pop. The cups hold exactly 8 oz of liquid. Suppose the actual amount dispensed by the machine follows a normal distribution with mean 7 oz. If it is found that exactly 4 percent of the cups overflow, what is the standard deviation of the normal distribution??
omg, please help.
