# Two sample t test calculator

Welcome to our Two Sample T Test Calculator, the ideal tool for comparing mean values from two independent samples. This calculator calculates test statistics, p-values, critical values, judgments, and conclusions using both equal and unequal variance approaches. This tool is intended to help students, researchers, and data analysts simplify their statistical analyses.

## What is a Two Sample T Test?

A Two Sample T Test is used to see if there is a significant difference in the means of two independent groups. This test is frequently used in experiments and research to compare two groups and draw conclusions about the population mean.

## Features of Our Two Sample T-Test Calculator

- Direct Data Entry: Enter each sample's raw data values directly into the calculator.
- Summary Statistics: If you have summary statistics rather than raw data, please provide the sample size, mean, and standard deviation.
- Hypothesis Testing: Determine whether your null and alternative hypotheses are two-tailed, right-tailed, or left-tailed.
- Significance Level: Enter the significance level (alpha) for the test.
- Variance Type: For more accurate results, select either equal or unequal variance.
- Detailed Results: Receive complete results, including test statistics, p-values, critical values, and decision-making conclusions.

## How To Use The Calculator

**Select Data Type:** Determine whether you have raw data values or summary statistics.

**Enter Data:** Fill in the data values or summary statistics for both samples.

**Hypothesis Selection:** Determine the relevant null and alternative hypotheses for your test.

**Set the Significance Level:** The alpha level is used to set the threshold for statistical
significance.

**Variance Type:** Determine whether the variances of the two samples are equal or unequal.

**Calculate:** To view the results, simply click the "Calculate" button.

## Frequently Asked Questions

**Q: What is the difference between equal and unequal variances?**

A: Equal variance assumes that the two populations have equal variance, whereas unequal variance does
not make this assumption. Selecting the proper option guarantees accurate results.

**Q: How do I determine whether to conduct a two-tailed, right-tailed, or left-tailed
test?**

A: It depends on your research hypothesis. If you want to find a significant difference, conduct a
two-tailed test. If you predict the first sample's mean to be greater than the second, perform a
right-tailed test. If you predict the first sample's mean to be less than the second, perform a
left-tailed test.
