## What is the minimum sample size for t-test?

No. There is no minimum sample size required to perform a t-test. In fact, the first t-test ever performed only used a sample size of four. However, if the assumptions of a t-test are not met then the results could be unreliable.

## How do you find the minimum sample size in Minitab?

Example of Sample Size for Estimation

- Choose Stat > Power and Sample Size > Sample Size for Estimation.
- In Parameter, select Mean (Normal).
- Under Planning Value, enter 22.5 in Standard deviation.
- In Margins of error for confidence intervals, enter 5 .
- Click OK.

**What is the maximum sample size for t-test?**

There is no upper limit on the number of samples for any kind of t-test. You may be getting confused with the fact that the t-distribution becomes almost identical to the normal distribution when df > 30.

### Can I use t-test for sample size more than 30?

Since t -test is a LR test and its distribution depends only on the sample size not on the population parameters except degrees of freedom. The t-test can be applied to any size (even n>30 also).

### Does sample size affect t-test?

t-Distributions and Sample Size The sample size for a t-test determines the degrees of freedom (DF) for that test, which specifies the t-distribution. The overall effect is that as the sample size decreases, the tails of the t-distribution become thicker.

**How does Minitab express calculate sample size?**

1. Click on “Stat”, then choose “Power and Sample Size” and then “Sample Size for Estimation”. 2. Choose the parameter you are estimating.

#### What does 85 power mean in statistics?

It’s the likelihood that the test is correctly rejecting the null hypothesis (i.e. “proving” your hypothesis). For example, a study that has an 80% power means that the study has an 80% chance of the test having significant results. A high statistical power means that the test results are likely valid.

#### Is 30 a large enough sample size?

Key Takeaways. The central limit theorem (CLT) states that the distribution of sample means approximates a normal distribution as the sample size gets larger, regardless of the population’s distribution. Sample sizes equal to or greater than 30 are often considered sufficient for the CLT to hold.

**Do you think that the t-test is a versatile?**

Solution: The t-test is more versatile, since it can be used to test a one-sided alternative.

## Do sample sizes need to be equal for two sample t-test?

The t-test is not dependent on equal, similar, or even close sample sizes. A t-test can be done with any sample sizes. Go ahead and use the t-test you have. I wish I knew where people got the idea that a t-test requires equal sample sizes.

## What happens to T if sample size increases?

As the sample size increases, the t-distribution becomes more similar to a normal distribution.

**When to use two sample t test?**

Gather the sample data. Sample standard deviation s1 = 18.5 Sample standard deviation s2 = 16.7

### How to perform a two sample t test?

Perform the independent t-test in R using the following functions : t_test ()[rstatix package]: the result is a data frame for easy plotting using the ggpubr package.

### What is an example of a two sample t test?

Two-Sample t-Test Example The following two-sample t-test was generated for the AUTO83B.DATdata set. The data set contains miles per gallon for U.S. cars (sample 1) and for Japanese cars (sample 2); the summary statistics for each sample are shown below. SAMPLE 1: NUMBER OF OBSERVATIONS = 249 MEAN = 20.14458

**What is a two sample mean t test?**

The two-sample t-test (Snedecor and Cochran, 1989) is used to determine if two population means are equal. A common application is to test if a new process or treatment is superior to a current process or treatment. There are several variations on this test. The data may either be paired or not paired.
