# 19: Visually Compare the Student's t Distribution to the Normal Distribution


Visually Compare the Student's $$t$$-Distribution with the normal distribution

The graphs below show the standard normal distribution in black and the student's $$t$$ distribution in red.  Move the slider to see how changing the sample size, and thus the degrees of freedom, changes the student's $$t$$ distribution.

n = 10, df = 9
