Urgent! Statistics Help - November 10th 2010, 10:01 PM

ta = 1.68957

t0 = 13.6946
n= 35
sample mean = 3.36
Sx = .54

Assume I put the data correctly in my calculator. When I do a t-test, I see nothing shaded. And since my test statistic is so large, I don't see either the critical value OR the test statistic on my calculator's drawing of the t-distribution. Did I do something wrong? For my project I have to draw a t-distribution, so how would I shade in an area where I can't even see it on the calculator? Would I just put the critical t-value somewhere and then point at the end of the curve and be like it's somewhere down the road over hurr"

Advice would be appreciated!

I'm really confused here. How are you trying to calculate the t-test? How did you manage to get a ta = 1.68957 and what was your alpha? Looking in a t-test table, I cant find that number anywhere, I can get a similar number on a chi-squared table? Are you sure you used the proper degrees of freedom as they vary depending on what you're calculating the t-test from?

I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.
