    Dependent Sample Help




    The question is asking the following:

    The two data sets are dependent. Find to the nearest tenth (one decimal place).

    A 64 53 57 63 51
    B 29 30 27 25 22

    This is what I did:

    I added data set A = 288
    I added data set B = 133
    The differnce between the two data = 155
    The mean (155/10) = 15.5
    This answer isn't correct. What am I doing wrong? Please advise.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING

    1NAMILL,

    This is dependent sample. The sample size is 5 because you have 5 pairs.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
