From historical data, the caffeine content (in milligrams, mg) is known to have a normal distribution with σ = 7.1 mg Π. During a 1-hour time period, the 50 samples yielded a mean caffeine content of y-bar = 110 mg.

b. Calculate a 95% confidence interval for the mean caffeine content m of the coffee produced during the hour in which the 50 samples were selected.
