Statistical Inference for the Mean: t-test Note 7 When variance is estimated from a sample, t-distribution applies. T-Distribution : a distribution related to normal distribution but taking into account the number of degrees of eedom ymmetrical and roughly bell haped freedom. Symmetrical and roughly bell-shaped . Probability =df Kd f =degrees of freedom =n-1 t
