    Figure A3 Upper critical values of Student's t Distribution with v Degrees of Freedom

    For selected probabilities, a, the table shows the values \(t_{v,a}\) such that \(P(t_v > t_{v,a}) = a\), where \(t_v\) is a Student’s \(t\) random variable with \(v\) degrees of freedom. For example, the probability is .10 that a Student’s \(t\) random variable with 10 degrees of freedom exceeds 1.372.
