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

I wish to know if there are any naturally occurring variables that have a t-distribution or chi-distribution.

I know that test statistics such as the mean or the sum of a sample has a t-distribution, where as the variance of a sample takes the chi-distribution. What I am trying to understand iswhy these statistics take a particular distribution.

Thanks,

MG.
