1.     Consider the two data sets (from independent populations) given below. What are the estimates of Delta (triangle symbol) (location of Y population - location of X population) using the Wilcoxon, Median, and Mean, respectively.(Hint: Since this is a two sample test, you could do this by hand or use your Class Codes)
X:    8    13    111

Y:   18    12     14    12
