You know how to calculate themean of means,x, the sample standard deviation,σ, and how to referencezandtscores. You are familiar withconfidence intervals and confidence levels. You know when to use az-test, and when to use at-test, and you knowthe difference between a null and alternative hypothesis. If are unsure of your grasp of any of these concepts, returnto the appropriate lesson and review before moving on, otherwise, let’s put it all together!Just for reference, here are the formulas for calculating confidence intervals oftandztests:T-test confidence interval=x±tα2snZ-test confidence interval=x±za2×σnThe steps to test a single-mean hypothesis:1. Choose an appropriate test:1.Z-test ifσis known and if the population is known to be normal orn30.2.T-test isσis unknown and/orn<30.
