# Confidence interval for a population proportion

The lifetime of a certain brand of battery is known to have a standard deviation of 11.3 hours. Suppose that a random sample of 90 such batteries has a mean lifetime of 33.4 hours. Based on this sample, find a 95% confidence interval for the true mean lifetime batteries of this brand. What is the lower limit of the 95% confidence level? What is the upper limit?
