    t distribution

    Write out the probability densities of t(1) distribution and t(infinity) distribution, and give the special distribution names of them

    I would like to double check my answers for this. Thanks

    Hello,

    Then why don't you show us what you've found ? It's better to spot out mistakes rather than giving the answer...
    Anyway, how do you define t(infinity) ?
    And you can check on the wikipedia for the first answer

    I think he means as the degrees of freedom/sample size approach infinity.

    Many books have an infinity row for the degrees of freedom in their t-distributions.
    Those percentiles are just the percentiles from a standard normal distribution.
