2. It says "Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate of the mean net change in
LDL cholestorol after the garlic treatment. What does the confidense interval
suggest about the effectiveness of garlic in reducing LDL cholestorol?

What is the confidence interval estimate of the population mean μ?

___mg/dL < μ < ___mg/dL

I just don't get how to solve this
