You randomly select and measure the contents of 10 bottles of cough syrup. The results (in fluid ounces are shown.
4.216 4.292 4.252 4.244 4.186
4.281 4.269 4.243 4.222 4.231

Assume the sample is taken from a normally distributed population. Construct 98% confidence intervals for (a) &#963;2 the population variances and (b)the population standard deviation &#963;.
