Hello professor,

Why we use inverse z or t and check our results on calculators ? Why don’t we use z/t interval on calculator at the first place?

Can you explain why we are using the t* in calculating the second example while we used the z* in the first and third example? I do not understand what the different conditions were in the question that made you know whether t* or z* had to be used.
