I'm assuming that since you ask for

*sample*standard deviation rather than*population*standard deviation, the confidence interval has been constructed using the t-distribution:

Therefore .

In your case (I think ..... it's not really clear from what you posted), n = 90, and . Use a table of critical values to get .

Substitute all these values and solve for s.
