**Bluegravity**, Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 1:52pmThat is incorrect. You do not use the Z-score for the mean. This is a Chi-square distribution.

1-.9=.10/2 (for left and right alpha tail) = .05

Find .05 and .95 using the d.f.=23

That equals 34.172 and 13.091

Using the formula for the variance which is ((n-1)s^(2))/(x^(2))

Your equation is an interval, so if you plug each in, your answer should be:

3.46<variance<9.29
