    Confidence Intervals.

    A random sample of 20 phials was drawn from a large consignment. The volume of the phails was known to be normally distributed with standard deviation α= 1.566ml. The sample mean was calculated to be 4.891ml. Construct the 99% confidence limits for the mean volume of the phails in the consignment?

    Can anyone please help me? my tutor is actually useless and makes everything so complicated.
