The results are shown in Table 1-3. 05 by giving the following. Table 1-3 Comparison of auto insurance bills for 1995 and 2004.

If a T curve with n À 1 degrees of freedom and a Z curve are plotted together, it can be seen that the T curve has a standard deviation larger than one.

The test statistic is Z ¼ ðx À 0 Þ=ðs= n Þ. The statistic, Z, has a standard normal distribution. The statistical test is performed by one of three methods: the classical method, the p-value method, or the confidence interval method. The Minitab pull-down Stat ) Basic Statistics ) 1-sample Z is used to set a confidence interval or test a hypothesis about  when your sample is large (n>30). SMALL SAMPLE INFERENCES ABOUT A SINGLE MEAN The test about a single mean for a small sample is based on a test statistic that has a student t distribution with degrees of freedom equal to n À 1, where n is the sample size.
