Sup everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Assume I have two sample observations.

I am wondering when I should use a test for a difference in mean and when I should use a test for a difference in median.

Should I test for mean if both the distribution of both the samples are normal?

Should I test for median otherwise?

I am confused!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
