    It is not straightforward to calculate this, you will need to look up some tables or find a calculator specifically designed for the t distribution. It asks you to use the t table in your textboo, often at high degrees of freedom the tables only give results for df=40, df=45, df=5, you will have to interpolate for df=44 if that is the case.

    Okay, I managed to get most of it, but can you tell me this, which is the upper and which is the lower limit number? I have 1.2119 and 1.7081, but I dont know which is which.

    "The formula is mean + SE*t and mean - SE*t. You need the t value for a area of .025 with 45 degrees of freedom. T value = 2.014103359
    So 1.46+2.014103359*.12318841 and 1.46-2.014103359*.12318841
    limits are 1.2119 and 1.7081"
