    If I have a set of two number \(\{a,b\}\), what is the mean and what is the standard deviation of those?

    \[\frac1{250}\cdot\sum_{i=1}^{250}x_i=15.6\]\[\frac1{250}\cdot\left(100\cdot\frac1{100}\sum_{i=1}^{100}x_i+\sum_{i=101}^{250}x_i\right)=15.6\]The first addend in parenthesis is \(100\cdot15=1500\). Name the second addend \(M\) and find it. This will be the mean you need to find.

    You have a set of numbers \(\{x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_{250}\}\). You know that\[\frac1{250}\cdot\sum_{i=1}^{250}x_i=15.6\] and\[\frac1{100}\cdot\sum_{i=1}^{100}x_i=15\]The question is: what equals the sum?\[\frac1{150}\cdot\sum_{i=101}^{250}x_i\]

    To find a deviation you need to have a mean of the second group. The last sum is the mean of the second group.

    Actually the set \(\{x_1,\ldots,x_{250}\}\) is divided into 2 groups: \(\{x_1,\ldots,x_{100}\}\) and \(\{x_{101},\ldots,x_{250}\}\).

    Now try to do the same thing with deviation. \[\sum_{i=1}^{100}(x_i-15)^2=\sum_{i=1}^{100}x_i^2-30\sum_{i=1}^{100}x_i-1500=9\]\[\sum_{i=1}^{250}(x_i-15,6)^2=\ldots=13.44^2\]Find the value of \(\sum_{i=101}^{250}x_i^2\) and then try to get the value of \(\sum_{i=101}^{250}(x_i-M)^2\), where \(M\) is the mean of the second group. Did you get it? Actually, this method is a bit complicated. There may be an easier method.

    Ok. Lets make an example which will look like your problem. Lets take a concrete set \(\{1,3,5,9\}\). And now divide it into 2 groups: \(\{1,3\}\) and \(\{5,9\}\). Find mean and standard deviation of all of these 3 groups.

    If you really want to solve this, and not just to get an answer, think about it by yourself. It is not so difficult task. It is a pure math problem and not stats. Hope you will. Anyway you can ask any question anytime. Best wishes.

    \[\text{variance}=\frac1n\sum_{i=1}^n(x_i-\text{mean}(x_i))\]Now you put \(2x_i-3y_i+6\) instead of \(x_i\).

    Because we have mean x as 12 and mean y as 16

    \(\text{mean}(2x_i-3y_i+6)=-18\). Look higher you did it by yourself. There was a formula how to get it.
