. For each of the following, assume that the two samples are selected from populations with equal means and calculate how much difference should be expected, on average, between the two sample means.

a. Each sample has n _ 5 scores with s2 _ 38 for the first sample and s2 _ 42 for the second. (Note: Because the two samples are the same size, the pooled variance is equal to the average of the two sample variances.)

b. Each sample has n _ 20 scores with s2 _ 38 for the first sample and s2 _ 42 for the second.

c. In part b, the two samples are bigger than in part a, but the variances are unchanged. How does sample size affect the size of the standard error for the sample mean difference?
