Mean = Σx/n

6 = Σx/20

Σx = 120

new Σx = 120 + 27 and new n = 21

Use the above equation to calculate new mean.

one sample has a mean of M= 4 and a second sample has a mean M=8. The two samples are combined into a single set of scores.

a. What is the mean for the combined set if both of the original samples have n= 7scores?

What is the mean for the combined set if the first sample has n= 3 and the second sample has n= 7?

What is the mean for the combined set if the first sample has n= 7 and the second sample has n= 3?
