Topic: Two independent population means 38. In which of the following tests is the variable of interest the difference between the values
of the observations from the two samples rather than the actual observations themselves?

related samples.

populations using large independent samples.

populations using small independent samples.

populations using independent samples. AACSB: Reflective Thinking
