Please help.. Thank you In advanced.?

A buret is used to dispense a fluid. The initial buret reading was 0.74 mL and final reading was 15.87 ml. If both readings have an uncertainty of 0.02 ml, what is the absolute uncertainty (mL units) in the dispensed volume of 15.13 mL

    Well I'm not entirely certain, but if the initial was 0.74 +/- 0.02 mL and the final was 15.87 +/- 0.02 mL, then if you take the minimum and maximum cases of the dispensed volume, then it would only make sense that the dispensed volume is 15.13 +/- 0.04 mL.
