Normal Probability Plots
The following example shows how to construct a normal probability plot (also called a normal
quantile-quantile plot) to determine whether it is reasonable to believe that a data set was sampled
from a normal distribution.

Unequal Variances
This module shows how to test the hypothesis that two
population means are equal when there is evidence that
the requirement that the two populations have the same
variance is not met.
