hello, i had asked something similar but this is a new problem and i am not understanding the logic.
here is the new problem.
Generate two squeences , of length 1000, of normally distributed random variables [X ] and [Y ]
N N
with the following properties:
_
X =100 sigma = 3
_ X
Y =200 sigma = 4
Y
_
Find numerically Z and sigma , if Z = X + Y
Z N N N
It is probably harder to understand as i am only in calculus 2 but i do understand the notations from looking them up which is just the mean value and standard deviation.
thank you for your time
