Problem 3E

Independent random samples of the heights of adult males living in two countries yielded the following results: \(n=12, \bar{x}=65.7\) inches, \(s_{x}=4\) inches and \(m=15, \bar{y}=68.2\) inches, \(s_{y}=3\) inches. Find an approximate  confidence interval for the difference \(\mu_{X}-\mu_{Y}\) of the means of the populations of heights. Assume that \(\sigma_{X}^{2}=\sigma_{Y}^{2}\)
