The following are summary statistics for a data set. Would it be appropriate to use the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Student's t- distribution to construct a confidence interval for these data?

Explain clearly!

Sample size = 10

Mean = 8.905

Median = 6.105

Standard deviation = 9.690

Minimum = 0.512

Maximum = 39.920

Q1 = 1.967

Q3 = 8.103

My answer would be it would be appropriate since n is less than 40(small sample size), we can use t distribution.

Any other explanations guys
