## Main Question or Discussion Point

We have X1,...,Xn~N(mu, sigma2)

The crux of my problem is finding out the distribution of, say, X1-Xbar (where Xbar is the mean of the n RVs). This is going to end up proving the independence of Xbar and Sxx, btw.

I know Xbar~N(mu, sigma2/n), but I don't know how to find the distribution of a difference of normal RVs with different arguments?

Thanks for any help.
