When comparing a mean of a sample to a known parameter but you DO NOT KNOW the standard deviation of the population: √ Degrees of freedom in this case – N‐1 For comparing two independent sample means: Calculating the Standard Error of the difference between means when Variances are equal 1 1 2 When Variances are not equal, when one is more than twice the other. Degrees of freedom for two independent means is (N1+N2) ‐ 2 When comparing proportions: (Use z for comparing proportions) 1 1 ...
