    A random sample of n = 9 wheels of cheese yielded the following weights in pounds, assumed to be
    N(μ, σ^2):

    21.50 18.95 19.40 19.15 22.35 22.90 22.20 23.10

    (a) Give a point estimate for σ.

    (b) Find a 95% confidence interval for σ and then find a 90% confidence interval for σ.
