We are going to look at comparison of two population means. We shall do very basic level calculations,
to understand the idea because in practice mostly su

The distribution of the sample means.
In this lesson, we shall consider the cases where the population is at least 20 times
larger than the size of the sample.
For example:
If we take a simple random sample of size 30 from the employees
