Reference no: EM13113446

I have studied 3 similar methods for testing hypotheses about population means -- a 1-sample test, and 2 versions of a 2-sample test (independent samples, and dependent samples).

What are the key conceptual differences between these 3 methods? In other words, under what conditions do we choose each method for our analysis, and why?
