Z for 90% is a range between -1.65 sigma to 1.645 sigma. So use your calculator or excel to find the variance, take the square root for sigma. And then multiply 1.645^2 by the variance for the range of positive and negative variance. multiply the sigma by 1.645 to get the range of positive and negative sigma.
Hope that helps!
