Probability questions

    probability questions plz help!!

    An engineer wishes to estimate the mean setting time of
    a new cement mix used in highway spot repairs. From a record of setting times
    for 10 spot repairs he obtain
    x = 25; 25; 24; 23; 25; 26; 23; 24; 22; 23
    minutes, respectively.
    (a) Find the mean and standard deviation of the setting time.

    (b) Find a 95% confidence interval for the mean setting time if the standard deviation
    is known to be ¾ = 1:5 min: Assume a normal distribution
    (c) Find a 95% confidence interval for for the mean setting time if the standard
    deviation is unknown.
