    2.Find σ for each group.
    3. Find z (1.96 for 95% interval; 2.58 for 99% interval) in this case as alpha is given 0.05, z is taken for 95% interval that is 1.96.
    4. Lower limit = M - z σ
    5. Upper limit = M + z σ
    6. Lower limit μ- σ Upper limit
    Assumptions:
    1. The populations are each normally distributed.
    2. σ is known
    3. Scores are sampled randomly and are independent
