A company that manufactures and bottles apple juice has a machine that automatically fills 16-ounce bottles. There is some variation, however, in the exact amount of juice dispensed into each bottle. From a large number of observations taken over a long period of time, it was found that the actual amount of juice dispensed into each bottle was normally distributed with a mean of 16 ounces and a standard deviation of 1 ounce. Find the percentage of all bottles that are either underfilled or overfilled by at least 0.25 ounce.
