Use a confidence interval formula:

CI90 = mean ± 1.645(sd/√n)

...where ± 1.645 represents the 90% confidence interval using a z-table, 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.
