Unformatted text preview: o The t-distribution is bell shpaed and symmetric about 0. o The probabilities depend on the degrees of freedom, df = n — 1. The t-distribution has a slightly different shape for each distinct value of df, and different t—scores apply for each df value. c The t-distribution has thicker tails and is more spread out than the standard normal distribution (z-distribution). c When df is 30 or more, the t—distribution is nearly identical to the z-distribution. ......._,V, __. ., M W e...
