Textbook Problem

One sample from an independent-measures study has n = 9 with a variance of s2 = 35. The other sample has n = 3 and s2 = 40.a. Compute the pooled variance. (Note: Equation 10.3 works well with these data.)b. Compute the estimated standard error for the mean difference.

a.

To determine

To find: The pooled variance for the given question.

Explanation

Given info:

Two samples with size 9 and 3 have sample variances 35 and 40 respectively.

Calculations:

Pooled variance:

sp2=SS1+SS2df1+df2

SS1=s12(n11)=35(91)=35×8=280

SS2:

SS2=s22(n21)=40(31)

b.

To determine

To compute: The estimated standard error for the mean.
