A) what is the mean for the combined set if both of the original samples have n = 5 scores?&

B) what is the mean for the combined set if the first sample has n = 4 score and the second sample has n = 8? &

A) what is the mean for the combined set if both of the original samples have n = 5 scores?&

B) what is the mean for the combined set if the first sample has n = 4 score and the second sample has n = 8? &

Expert's answer

A) The mean wil lbe equal to

X = (5*6+5*12)/(5+5) = 9

B) The mean of the combined set would be

X = (4*6 + 8*12) / (4+8) = 10.

X = (5*6+5*12)/(5+5) = 9

B) The mean of the combined set would be

X = (4*6 + 8*12) / (4+8) = 10.

The mean for the combined sample will be (n1M1+n2M2)/(n1+n2)=(4*10+6*5)/(4+6)=(40+30)/10=70/10=7.
