I have a baseline set of data collected which has a standard deviation ofX, and then I collected another set of the data under a different condition (different temperature), and this has a different standard deviationY. How do I cancel out the standard deviations, to only see the difference of the actual data as it varies with the condition change (temperature)? I try to stay vague, but if this doesn't make sense of what I'm looking for, I'll give my application example. Just a general topic to point me to would help if nothing else.
