    I do not know how to solve the second question ?

    Cans of lemon juice are supposed to contain 440 ml of juice. It is found that the actual volume of juice in a can is normally distributed with mean 445 ml and standard deviation 3.6 ml.
    (i) Find the probability that a randomly chosen can contains less than 440 ml of juice. [3]

    It is found that 94% of the cans contain between 445 − c ml and 445 + c ml of juice.
    (ii) Find the value of c. [3]

    Just like in one of your previous questions, make a sketch and indicate the info.

    We have P(445-c < V < 445+c)=0.94.

    This region is clearly symmetry about the mean. We can rewrite as:

    2P(445 < V < 445 + c) = 0.94

    Now try to obtain the form P(V < 445+c)=... to work with and deduce your c from there.
