    CI95 = mean + or - 1.96(sd divided by √n)
    ...where + or - 1.96 represents the 95% confidence interval using a z-table, sd = standard deviation, √ = square root, and n = sample size.

    Using your data:
    CI95 = 130 + or - 1.96 (12/√36)

    I'll let you finish the calculation to determine the interval.

    I hope this will help.
