This is the question;

This is the solution as received;

I am not familiar with the approach used in the solution...my thinking was as follows

The frequencies are the same...the only thing changing are the discrete variables thus;

Let ##[x= 2,4,6]## and ##[y=7,13,19]## form a sequence...then the nth term is given by;

##x_n=2n## and ##y_n=(3⋅2n)+1=6n+1=3(x_n)+1##

##y_n=3(x_n)+1##

I will need to think on this...your input is welcome though as we already have the solution given...not unless it is wrong. Cheers.

I will look at this later...should be achievable! Since they've given us standard deviation for ##x## ... and both frequencies have same values then I would need to find the ratio of ##a:b:c## then use that to determine the standard deviation of ##y##.
