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.

    Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the Z score. Remember to calculate for both directions.
