Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm reading up on confidence intervals for means. This is leaving my mind boggled. I caught the part where the interval = t_{c}*(sample standard deviation/the square root of n). What's boggling my mind though is the variable tc. I see that t refers to a T distribution. But, I can't figure out how t_{0.975}could give you a 95% confidence interval.
