# Statistics t Distributions

Section 10: Inferential Statistics: Lecture 2 | 1:02:06 min

In this lesson, we are going to talk about t-distribution. Previously, we learned that there are different situations where we use z and when we use t. Today we are going to talk about when to use z versus t. We are going to break down and sort of reflect and recognize what is z and t. We will see what do they have in common and what is different about them. We will talk about rules of t distributions. We will see that they follow certain patterns and t distributions are a family of distributions separated by degrees of freedom.
