## What are the characteristics of t-test?

A t-test is used as a hypothesis testing tool, which allows testing of an assumption applicable to a population. A t-test looks at the t-statistic, the t-distribution values, and the degrees of freedom to determine the statistical significance.

### What does p-value mean in JMP?

probability

The p-value is the probability of a quantile in some distribution. One uses the cumulative distribution function (CDF) for the distribution model (e.g., normal distribution) to obtain the probability for a given quantile (e.g., data value or sample statistic).

#### What is importance of t-test?

A t-test is a type of inferential statistic used to determine if there is a significant difference between the means of two groups, which may be related in certain features. The t-test is one of many tests used for the purpose of hypothesis testing in statistics.

**When to use a paired t test?**

The paired t-test is used when the variable is numerical in nature (for example, the height of a person or the weight of a person) and the individuals in the sample are either paired up in some way (such as a husband and wife) or the same people are used twice (for example, preprocedure and postprocedure).

**What is the difference between F-test and t-test?**

The difference between the t-test and f-test is that t-test is used to test the hypothesis whether the given mean is significantly different from the sample mean or not. On the other hand, an F-test is used to compare the two standard deviations of two samples and check the variability.

## What is an example of an one sample t test?

For the one-sample t -test, we need one variable. We also have an idea, or hypothesis, that the mean of the population has some value. Here are two examples: A hospital has a random sample of cholesterol measurements for men. These patients were seen for issues other than cholesterol. They were not taking any medications for high cholesterol.

### What is a paired and unpaired t-test?

Paired means that both samples consist of the same test subjects. A paired t-test is equivalent to a one-sample t-test. Unpaired means that both samples consist of distinct test subjects. An unpaired t-test is equivalent to a two-sample t-test.
