is approximately normal by
the Central Limit Theorem.

Assumptions about the two populations:
1.
Both sampled populations have relative frequency distributions that are approximately
normal.
2.
The population variances are equal.
Assumptions about the two samples:
The samples are randomly and independently selected from the population.
