Also referred as Student t-test
Suppose we have taken a sample of 100 women andfound mean Hb as 11.4 gm. Now the question iswhether this sample is from a population whosestandard deviation is 2 gm and mean Hb is 12 or not?
hat should we be looking at?
Is there a difference b/w population meanand sample mean?
In this case difference is there
Again the question is; Is this differencesignificant ? Or it is due to chance alone
