    with the given conditions of same variances and sample sizes, how does the RHS of the top Prob. simplify into 1.96*(2)^1/2? A

    Also, shouldn't the probability be 0.00280 according to the normal distribution?

    Replace m with n and sigma x with sigma y, and see what you can do. It's not that difficult.

    Also, shouldn't the probability be 0.00280 according to the normal distribution?
    You're forgetting the modulus sign round the Z, so it's twice that.

    THANK YOU! I overlooked the sqrt of 2 in the denom when I put those conditions earlier.

    Any chance you can help me with this one please?-- http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...1#post42182461

    Posted a reply there, but I'm not well up on multivariate calculus. DFranklin does know what he's talking about.
