Confidence Interval using T test and outlier

Compute a 95% confidence interval for the population mean, based on the sample 1.5, 1.54, 1.55, 0.09, 0.08, 1.55, 0.07, 0.99, 0.98, 1.12, 1.13, 1.00, 1.56, and 1.53. Change the last number from 1.53 to 50 and recalculate to the confidence interval. Using the results, describe the effect of an outlier or extreme value on the confidence interval.
