what is positively skewed ,symmetric and negatively skewed distribution?
Let $A$ and $B$ be non-empty disjoint sets of real numbers. Suppose that the average of the numbers in the first set is $\mu_{A}$ and the average of the numbers in the second set is $\mu_{B}$; let the corresponding variances be $v_{A}$ and $v_{B}$ respectively. If the average of the elements in $A \cup B$ ... $p.v_{A}+ (1 - p). v_{B} + (\mu_{A}- \mu_{B})^{2}$
