Using the t table and SPSS Need to know how to use t table and SPSS. If your degrees of freedom are not on t table (like df = 79), always round down to the next degree of freedom that is there. t table in the back of your book and here: http://www.stat.purdue.edu/~gundlach/stat301/index_files/Page612.htm

One-sample mean CI and HT t table approach An agricultural expert performs a study to measure yield of a tomato field. Studying 10 plots of land, she finds the mean yield is 34 bushels with a sample standard deviation of 12.75 bushels. Find a 95% confidence interval for the population mean yield of tomatoes.

One-sample mean CI and HT t table approach An agricultural expert performs a study to measure yield of a tomato field. Studying 10 plots of land, she finds the mean yield is 34 bushels with a sample standard deviation of 12.75 bushels. Conduct a hypothesis test with α = 0.05 to determine if the population mean yield of tomatoes is less than 42 bushels.

1-sample mean test and CI by hand and with SPSS How accurate are radon detectors of a type sold to homeowners? To answer this question, university researchers placed 12 detectors in a chamber that exposed them to 105 picocuries per liter of radon. The detector readings were as follows: 91.9 97.8 111.4 122.3 105.4 95.0 103.8 99.6 119.3 104.8 101.7 96.6
