    Aggregate with a low measre of thermal conductivity is desirable for paving. Two types of aggregate are randomly sampled and tested fir thermal conductivity, with 25 observations from X (lower cost type) with mean 0.485 and standard deviation 0.18, and 25 observations from Y (higher cost type) with mean 0.372 and standard deviation 0.16.
    (a) Find the standard error of the difference in the sample means bar-X - bar-Y.
    Var(bar-X - bar-Y) =
    The standard error is...

    b) Obtain a 99% CI for the mean difference.
