Use a confidence interval formula:
CI90 = mean ± 1.645(sd/√n)
...where ± 1.645 represents the 90% confidence interval using a ztable, sd = standard deviation, √ = square root, and n = sample size.
Plug your data into the formula to calculate the confidence interval.
I hope this will help get you started.
