Type winver in the Run dialog box (Windows key + R)

The second line will tell you the version of Windows 8.1 that's installed.

Version 6.3 (Build 9200) = Windows 8.1
Version 6.3 (Build 9600) = Windows 8.1, Update 1

you could also go to the metro interface and if you see a search icon to the right of your username, the update is installed

Windows 8.1 is a different operating system to Windows 8. The method above or Computer -> Properties will tell you between the two.

"Update 1" was nothing significant and was just a run of the mill Windows update. If the machine is even modestly up to date, you have "Update 1"

How would one determine if the machine is [even] modestly up to date, John?

Update 1 is not identified except it has a KB number that you would have to look up.
Thanks, John, for the lightening response. :-)

Perfect.  Thank you very much.
The selected answer is wrong. If you ask winver, 8.1 and 8.1 update both share the same build 9600.
Rindi's is the correct answer.
