The price for 2 tickets with online service charges, large popcorn and 2 medium soft drinks at a sample of 6 theater chains: \$36.15, \$31.00, \$35.05, \$40.25, \$33.75, \$43.00

a) Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate for the population mean the price for 2 tickets with online service charges, large popcorn and 2 medium soft drinks, assuming a normal distribution.

mean of sample = 36.53
n = 6
standard deviation = 19.26866 ( square root of ((36.15 - 36.53)^2 + (31 - 36.53)^2 + (35.05 - 36.53)^2 + (40.25 - 36.53)^2 + (33.75 - 36.53)^2 + (43 - 36.53)^2) / 6-1)
standard error of sample mean = 7.8664
critical value of t = 0.025
degrees of freedom = 5

95% C.I. = 36.53 +/- (critical value of t = 0.025)(7.8664)
95% C.I. = 36.53 +/- (2.571)(7.8664)
95% C.I. = 36.53 +/- 20.2245

My answer is wrong and the interval estimate is between 31.9267 and 41.1399. I think my error is solving for the standard deviation. How do you solve for it? Please provide a step-by-step solution. Thank you.
