Test of single population, small sample size (t-statistics)
1. Why would you use a small sample to draw inference about a large population?
When the assumption required for a large-sample test of hypothesis about m is violated, we need a hypothesis-testing procedure that is appropriate for use with small samples, because if we use methods of the large-sample test there will be following errors:
(i) the small sample will ...
Solution attaches a Word file which explains why and how to use sample sizes as accurate representations of populations, and the concept of z- and t-test statistics within this.
