  1. Find the mean first = sum of scores/number of scores

    Subtract each of the scores from the mean and square each difference. Find the sum of these squares. Divide that by the number of scores to get variance.

    Standard deviation = square root of variance

    90% = mean ± 2.575 SD

    I'll let you do the calculations.

    I'm not clear on what you are asking for in the last part.
