Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\mu \pm z\alpha\] you already have average and standard deviation, what is "z" corresponding to 90th confidence interval?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The z that gives 90% confidence interval is 1.645: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=inverse+normal+z%3D1.645

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[1.8\pm1.645*1.3\] \[Lower Range: 1.81.645*1.3\] \[Upper Range: 1.8+1.645*1.3\] Does this make sense?
