One sample has SS = 70 and a second sample has SS = 42.a. If n = 8 for both samples, find each of the sample variances, and calculate the pooled variance. Because the samples are the same size, you should find that the pooled variance is exactly halfway between the two sample variances.b. Now assume that n = 8 for the first sample and n = 4 for the second. Again, calculate the two sample variances and the pooled variance. You should find that the pooled variance is closer to the variance for the larger simple.

To Find: The samplevariances and pooled variance for the given question

Explanation

Given info:

Two samples each with size 8 have sum of squared difference (SS) equal 70 and 42 respectively.

Calculations:

The formula for sample variance is:

s2=SSn1

Substitute SS1=70 and n1=8 to get s12

s12=707=10

Similarly, substitute values SS2=42 and n2=8 to get s22

s22=427=6

Now, the degrees of freedom for two samples are calculated as:

df1=df2=n1

b.

To Find: The sample variances and pooled variance for the given question.
