To test this theory, they had10 men and 10 women perform a set of tasks that required multitasking in order to have sufficient time to complete all of the tasks. They use a scoring system that produces scores between 0 and 100. The women ended up with an average of 72 with a standard deviation of 5, while themen averaged 64 with a standard deviation of 9.

a) Calculate the 95% confidence intervals on the score for men and for women.

b)Based on this experiment, can you conclude at 95% confidence level women are better than men at multitasking?
