He method of tree ring dating gave the following years A.D. for an archaeological excavation site. Assume that the population of x values has an approximately normal distribution.

1222, 1243, 1257, 1285, 1268, 1316, 1275, 1317, 1275

(a) Use a calculator with mean and standard deviation keys to find the sample mean year x and sample standard deviation s. (Round your answers to the nearest whole number.)

x =

A.D.

s = yr

(b) Find a 90% confidence interval for the mean of all tree ring dates from this archaeological site. (Round your answers to the nearest whole number.)
