# Resolved: Sample Size Classification

As explained in the previous lectures for small samples with variance unknown, we use t-statistic, and for large samples with variance known/unknown, we use z-statistic. Can you please range what sample values (n size) fall under small and large sample categories?

Usually for n > 30, then the sample size is "large"; and n <= 30, the sample size is "small"
