### Test for a Difference Between Two Means

If both independent sample are large or both populations from which the sample is selected are drawn from a normal distributions with known standard deviations, use the normal distribution to test

*μ*_{1}−*μ*_{2}.If both independent sample are large or both populations from which the sample is selected are drawn from a normal distributions with unknown standard deviations, use the

*t*-distribution with*ν*=*n*_{1}+*n*_{2}− 2 degrees of freedom to test*μ*_{1}−*μ*_{2}.If the sample size is large or the population of paired differences is normally distributed with unknown standard deviations, then use the

*t*-distribution with*ν*=*n*− 1 degrees of freedom to test*μ*_{d}.
