The mean and standard deviation of some data for the time taken to complete a test are calculated with the following results:Number of observations =$25$,mean =$18.2$ seconds, standard deviation $=3.25$ seconds. Further another set of $15$ observations $x_1,x_2,......x_5$ also in seconds is now available and we have $\sum\limits_{i=1} ^{15}x_i =279$ and $\sum \limits_{i=1} ^{15} x_i^2 =5524$Calculate the standard deviation based on all $40$ observations

The mean and standard deviation of a set of $n_1$ observations are $\bar{x_1}$ and $s_1$ respectively , while the mean and standard deviation of another set of $n_2$ observations are $x_2$ and $s_2$ respectively. Show that the standard deviation of the combined set of $(n_1+n_2)$ observations is given by $ S.D= \sqrt {\large\frac{n_1 (s_1)^2 +n_2 (s_2)^2}{n_1+n_2} +\frac{n_1n_2(\bar {x_1} -\bar {x_2} )^2}{(n_1+n_2)^2}}$
