    A variable of two populations has a mean of 40 and a standard deviation of 12 for one of the populations and a mean a of 40 and a standard deviation of 6 for the other population. Moreover, the variable is normally distributed on each of the two populations.

    a. For independent samples of sizes 9 and 4, respectively, determine the mean and standard deviation of X1-X2. (See attachment for full questions).
